McClure Statement on Prisoner Review Board nominations

State Senator Steve McClure (R-Springfield) released the following statement on the resignation of Oreal James and the failed Senate confirmation vote on Eleanor Wilson:

“Each member of the Prisoner Review Board has a vote to determine whether or not to release violent convicted felons from prison. This is an incredibly important job with potentially deadly consequences. These appointments cannot, and should not, be taken lightly. I’m glad that some appointees have finally been heard and vetted by the Senate. I hope that the Governor will now change his approach and nominate individuals who will serve with the safety of the people of Illinois in mind, while honoring the wishes and concern of victims.”
