October 2, 2019 - As the sentencing reform committee he chairs works on potentially landmark legislation for the next session, Rep. Walter Blackman is working on a handful of other criminal justice reform proposals that he hopes will lay the groundwork for what will most likely be a protracted fight.
Blackman hopes to pass legislation next session to create more diversionary programs that will keep people from being arrested for nonviolent crimes, create more programs with the corrections system aimed at cutting down on recidivism, provide more oversight for the Arizona Department of Corrections, and standardize the way that government entities in Arizona use to track and report criminal justice data.
