The furor over dropped charges for Jussie Smollett is reaching the State House. 

 

Republican Representative Allen Skillicorn says the decision by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office needs more review. He’s filled a Freedom of Information Act to see the emails connected to the case and the decision.

 

 

Another lawmaker wants to introduce a bill that would prohibit TV and movie producers from receiving the state’s film tax credit if they employ Smollett.
