UPDATE: Judiciary Hearing

Congratulations Criminal Justice Policy Coalition Members and Allies!

YOU made a BIG difference . . .

at the Judiciary Committee hearings on CORI (HB 2874) and Mandatory Minimum Sentencing Reform (S. 929) at the state House on November 22, 2005!

  • The hearing room at the State House was packed with supporters of S 929 and HB 2874.
  • Through a long, hot, cramped day, CJPC members and allies endured and demonstrated through their physical presence and compelling testimony that the Judiciary Committee must report these bills out quickly and favorably.
  • Missed it? The hearing was on November 22. We will soon be posting testimony. And the fight has just begun. Read on to get involved!

  • Ask your legislators to contact the Chairs of the Judiciary Committee to ask them to report HB 2874 and S 929 quickly and favorably.
