Springfield, IL. (ECWd) –

It took awhile, but we received our FOIA request for more information on Jack Franks’ prohibition of unescorted access to the state capitol and adjoining capitol complex buildings.

According to the Illinois State Capitol Police PATROL ALERT dated March 19, 2019:

Specific Details

Franks is to be escorted by Capitol Police at all times in the event that he should come to the Capitol Complex.
