– State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park)

SPRINGFIELD – Courts will need to consider higher penalties for defendants who transport drugs across county lines under a plan approved by the Illinois Senate on Wednesday.

State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) was a chief cosponsor of the plan which passed the Senate with bipartisan support.

“There is a heroin epidemic in the suburbs and it is taking an unbelievable toll on our communities. Stemming the flow of any devastating drug is an important step,” Cullerton said.

The plan, Senate Bill 3469, was introduced by Senator Kirk Dillard (R-Hinsdale). It does not create a new offense under the law; instead it requires courts to consider the impact of inter-county narcotics trafficking during sentencing.

Senate Bill 3469 passed the Senate by a 57-0 vote. It now moves to the House.
