Is 2021 the Year
for Criminal Justice Reform?
Date: Thursday, Dec. 10, 2020 • Discussion: 8-9 AM

The legalization of recreational marijuana – which voters approved a few weeks ago – includes expungement of records for individuals convicted of possession-only offenses. How will the state comply with the new law? Should prisoners be granted early release because of COVID-19? The House formed the Criminal Justice Reform Committee for the 55th Legislature. Will legislators tackle more substantive changes to reduce Arizona’s prison population? There’s a lot to talk about. Send in your questions!
