The Wisconsin Justice Initiative is launching a "Laws and Legislation" page on its website to keep readers up-to-date with the goings-on in Madison and Washington.
With the State Legislature in recess, we're starting with a look back at laws adopted during the 2019-20 state legislative session – for those working for progressive justice reform, it's pretty depressing reading. More felonies and longer prison sentences were the rule.
We'll also link to news and readings from other sources and, when the Legislature returns in January, we will cover new legislation as it grinds through the process.
We hope you find this page and the information on it useful.
