Call the Governor: Restorative justice bill passes Colorado General Assembly
Colorado’s General Assembly passed legislation Wednesday night in the waning hours of its current session to include restorative justice practices among the options available to the justice system. Participation must be voluntarily chosen.
Senate sponsor Sen. Linda Newell and House sponsor Rep. Pete Lee guided the legislation through multiple votes. The House concurred with the Senate version in a vote late on May 11. HB 11-1032, now goes to Gov. John Hickenlooper for signature.
