LFO Reform now in the #WALEG Budget process Call or email NOW!

LFO REFORM UPDATE: We live to fight another week!!!

HB 1390 just got labeled NTIB or “Necessary to Implement Budget”.
That means that we now have until MARCH to:

1) Make sure it passes the Senate Floor

2) Make sure the negotiating lawmakers in the House and Senate restore HB 1390 back to the original House version.

3) Get it to the Governors Desk to be signed.

****CALL/EMAIL NOW, By March 10****
The Black Prisoners Caucus has given us our marching orders. We want an anti-racist, holistic LFO Reform that includes the elimination of non-restitution interest rate, an equitable assessment of a person’s ability to pay, and a community service alternative.
Legislative Targets (in order of importance) are:
Goodman, O’ban, Ranker, Frockt Holy, Jinkins, Stokesbury, & Padden, Hasegawa & Jayapal as well as ALL Senators.
Let them know ‪#‎BlackOutWA‬ says "End the Cycle of Criminal Justice Debt for Black families! Pass the House version of HB 1390: Legal Financial Obligation Reform on the Senate a Floor!"
