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 Effective July 1, 2020, and repealed on June 30, 2016.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
Here for CAP Testimony

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 social policy
  • Hawai`i’s Reentry law (353H, HRS) passed in 2007 has never been implemented and HB 2363 HD2 is the first movement to put the law into practice

 

Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.
Indira Gandhi
