Cedar St. SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - Attorney General William Scott says a bill that would allow him to conduct criminal investigations through a statewide grand jury is expected to be killed in the House next week by one to three votes. "There are those who desperately want this bill killed," he told a group of United Auto Workers Tuesday. "To those individuals I say: If you have done nothing wrong, what do you have to fear?" Democrats Object The measure, which Scott has termed crucial, was approved by the Senate on a 33-14 vote May 8 over Democratic objections that the attorney general could use such a jury for political purposes. Scott said the bill is expected to be reported favorably out of a House committee next week, but "word is right now that it's going to get beat when it reaches the House floor." "All we need is one or two or at the most three votes," he said. Scott wants the bill because the attorney general currently has no power to initiate criminal proceedings except in the antitrust sector of prices and marketing. On Judge's Order ty attorneys now have sole power to handle grand juries. On another issue, Scott said he has asked the Senate to reconsider its rejection of John Nolan, an exconvict who Gov. Daniel Walker nominated to the state Pardon and Parole Board. Scott said the Senate based its rejection in part on a pending court case in which Nolan is involved, although he is not a defendant. To reject him on that basis, Scott said, is to presume he will be found guilty— a presumption antithetical to the American idea that a man is innocent until proved guilty.
