OSWEGO – In Illinois’ 14th CD, U.S. Rep Lauren Underwood refuses to condemn the SAFE-T Act, and Republican challenge Scott Gryder wants to know why. 

Pointing out that Underwood is taking campaign donations from “radical, defund-the-police politicians,” Gryder lays out his thoughts on the state law that will begin taking effect January 1, 2023. 

“I stand, and will continue to stand, with law enforcement, first responders, and victims and their families. Every individual has the right to feel safe and secure in their home and community,” Gryder said in a press release. “I will speak against and hold the line on bad legislation like I’ve done with this resolution.” 

The resolution Gryder refers to is found on Page 43 of the Kendall County minutes. 

One question that remains to be answered from Congresswoman Underwood, Gryder says: “Where do you stand on the SAFE-T act, Lauren?”

Local law, national implications. The Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity-Today Act, known as the SAFE-T Act has raised concerns among 100 State’s Attorneys and a growing number of local and state officials.


Several initiatives of the SAFE-T act go into effect over the next few years. Most notably, beginning January 1, 2023, the elimination of cash bail is set to take effect. This severely limits the judiciary’s ability to set bail to hold the accused accountable, and it puts victims and their families in jeopardy of safety and security.

“When we let criminals free, our nation suffers. Under the SAFE-T Act, they will be free to travel and escape to their next crime without being held accountable with bail,” Gryder said.

Gryder then turned to the voters in Illinois’ 14th CD.

“Radical politicians continue to unilaterally decide what is best for you and your family. They continue to pass bills without your input, without your voiced concerns, without listening to the concerns of attorneys and law enforcement,” he said in a statement. “Lauren Underwood refuses to acknowledge and condemn the SAFE-T act. Instead, she continues to campaign and accept money from radical, defund-the-police politicians.”

Gryder continued. 

“I stand, and will continue to stand, with law enforcement, first responders, and victims and their families. Every individual has the right to feel safe and secure in their home and community. I will speak against and hold the line on bad legislation like I’ve done with this resolution.”

Gryder faces Lauren Underwood on the November 8th ballot.
