Legislative update — veto session

Rep. Zalewski is filing a new amendment to SB 1342, the mandatory minimums bill. The new language will take out the enhanced 85 percent sentence for first-time Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon, to address concerns of unintended consequences.

The new bill is scheduled to be heard by the House Judiciary Committee today at 3:15 pm in Room 118 of the Capitol.
