As the session starts to wind down, there are days with little going on, followed by a flurry of activity.
I serve on the Judiciary Committee, which deals with numerous criminal code issues. There is a move in this country for sentencing and incarceration reform. Too often, the way we do things in criminal justice costs way too much and has little impact on crime. And sometimes, we have made it too easy for someone to avoid punishment by having too short of a time frame to bring charges.
