Dear Members of the Public,
The Connecticut Sentencing Commission was established under Connecticut Public Act 10-129, An Act Establishing a Sentencing Commission, to review on an ongoing basis the criminal justice and sentencing policies and laws of this state. Part of the commission’s charge is to “make recommendations concerning criminal justice legislation, including proposed modifications thereto, to the joint standing committee of the General Assembly having cognizance of matters relating to the judiciary which shall hold a hearing thereon.” To that end, the Connecticut Sentencing Commission is considering the recommendation of several legislative proposals for the 2013 Connecticut General Assembly legislative session.
The Sentencing Commission, recognizing the importance of public input, is very interested in learning the views and opinions of those who may be affected by these proposals. As such, the Sentencing Commission held a Public Hearing on November 29, 2012 at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford, Connecticut.
Hon. Joseph M. Shortall, Chair
Connecticut Sentencing Commission
