Pass Emerging Adults (HB 1325/SB 5451)

This bill increases the age for sentence review consideration from 18 to 25, which aligns state code with modern brain science, decreases incarceration costs, and meaningfully advances efforts to address racial disparities in sentencing. This bill does not guarantee release, but rather offers the opportunity for incarcerated individuals who qualify to go before the Indeterminate Sentence Review Board for consideration.
