SB 261 is Law!!!

Saturday, October 3rd, 2015

SB 261 was signed by the Governor and is law! Thank you to everyone who wrote letters and made calls.

Senate Bill 261 extends youth parole through age 22, recognizing that young people deserve a second chance. It builds on the capacity of young people to turn their lives around and not be defined by the worst thing they have ever done. Please refer to the SB 261 Fact Sheet for information about this law.
