Help Create a Taskforce to Review Offender Programs, Sentencing and Supervision

We are excited that SB-6308 has passed out of the Senate and is now in the House Rules Committee.  


Please contact House Rules members to request a pull for second reading (debate) and third reading (floor vote).  This is the last step for passage!


This bill would establish a joint committee to examine prison programs, sentencing and community supervision to find evidence based methods to reduce recidivism and help ex-offenders transition successfully back into society.

We cannot continue to build prisons or even to send people back to prison.  Studies show that three out of five offenders will re-offend after release and some federal studies suggest that this number is as high as two out of three. Programs that give offenders skills and support systems have proven successful in reducing recidivism. Crime victims also support programs that
can put offenders back into community as a productive member of society.  

Below is a list of the House Rules members.
