Next up: House Bill 838, a key element of our criminal reform package by Speaker Tucker comes before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, May 14 at 9 a.m. This bill has recently been amended to accommodate concerns of the District Attorney's Association which was strongly opposing our legislation until a mutually favorable compromise was reached.
