The State House News Service reports on WBUR.org about the new ride-hailing legislation to be debated by the senate next week. Senator Brownsberger was one of five Senators to sit on a working group that developed the bill.
WBUR reports on the initial finds presented by the Council of State Government’s Justice Center to the state’s new Working Group reviewing the criminal justice system. “So far, the center’s researchers have analyzed publicly-available data and decided to further its review of three areas: incarceration, recidivism and supervision.” The presentation given by the Council at the meeting can be found at this post.
The Massachusetts House has approved a bill that would allow a parole review in such cases after a 20-to-30-year prison sentence. William Brownsberger, who is Senate chair of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary, joined WBUR’s Morning Edition to talk about what to expect from Tuesday’s deliberations.
