Illinois lawmakers have passed a bill aimed at those who help a family member flee from the police. Currently, if you hide a relative who is a fugitive from the law in your home, you are exempt from being prosecuted. But legislation sponsored by Representative Sid Mathias of Buffalo Grove changes that a bit.

Mathias comments

The measure has now passed both the House and Senate but still needs to be signed into law by the Governor.
