State Priority: In Gov. Parson’s State of the State speech, he embraced criminal justice reform: “As a former sheriff and law enforcement officer for over 22 years, I understand, firsthand, the importance of reentry programs and alternative sentencing. We need to be more efficient in these programs so we truly offer a second chance, AND, as Governor, I am NOT interested in building more prisons.”
