HB 2363 HD2  RELATING TO PUBLIC SAFETY.          PBS, JUD, FIN
http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/session2014/bills/HB2363_HD2_.pdf

Provides systematic reentry programming for nonviolent, low-risk drug offenders by establishing the Reentry Pilot Project for Nonviolent, Low-risk Drug Offenders. Effective July 1, 2020, and repealed on June 30, 2016. (HB2363 HD2)

CAP POSITION: SUPPORT

Talking Points:

  • This is an investment in social capital to build safe, just, and healthy communities for Hawai`i’s families
  • Reducing our imprisoned population by providing more and better community services to directly address the most common pathway to crime is a sound fiscal decision
  • Hawai`i’s Reentry law (353H, HRS) passed in 2007 has never been implemented
  • HB 2363 HD2 is the first movement to put the law into practice

Justice and power must be brought together, so that whatever is just may be powerful, and whatever is powerful may be just.
– Blaise Pascal
