Senate version of bill seeking public defense funding scheduled for public hearing

In last week’s Bulletin we discussed legislation that offers new funding options to help offset the cost of the State Supreme Court misdemeanor caseload limits for public defenders. Click here for the article. SB 6249 will be heard February 5 at 1:30pm in the Senate Law & Justice Committee. AWC will be there to testify in support. We encourage cities to contact members of the Committee and urge them to support this legislation as well. Contact information can be found here. For questions please contact Candice Bock or Brittany Sill.
