Brad attended the reform commission meeting in August and a summary was shared with the membership. Future meetings of the commission have yet to be scheduled but once known, will be sent out to the membership.
The sentencing commission will meet later this month in Topeka to release their legislative proposals and Brad will be attending this as well.
Brad and Chris had lunch a couple of weeks ago with Steve and Colin from Kearney and Associates to discuss legislative issues. They shared that the SB 367 audits are ongoing and will continue throughout the fall and that there has been some valuable information shared regarding SB367. Also discussed a possible legislative fix to allow CSO’s to help clients obtain ID’s from KDOR. Steve advised he wanted to run this by OJA as well as agents from KDOR before putting forth a bill.
Next legislative meeting is scheduled for 9/24/19 at 11:00 in Topeka at OJA.
