Court Reform

Stop charging credit card interest rates on court ordered restitution.
Reduce trial delays by adding two new judicial departments.
Statute of Limitations for traffic tickets and minor civil fines.
Promote behavioral health recovery with tested diversion programs.

Corrections Reform

Basic human needs should be provided for those incarcerated.
Provide shelter or services for after-hours releases.
