Action Alert: Corrections reform
The Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved a critical bill today relating to corrections reform. HB 463 (Tilley) has the potential to save our state over $422 million in the next decade without taking a soft approach to crime. This bill makes public safety a priority by continuing to hold offenders accountable, but chooses alternative methods to incarceration such as better drug treatment programs. The measure now moves on to the full Senate to tentatively be heard on Monday. Call 1-800-372-7181 and leave a message for your senator, urging him/her to vote yes for HB 463.
