Bail reform bills round 10

The bail reform battle continues HB20 versus SB 21

Bail bonds: Even though SB 21 by Huffman—the Senate’s preferred bail bond reform bill—is now in the House, the lower chamber declined to take it up and instead passed over to the Senate HB 20 by Murr (after amending it 10 times—read the “engrossed” version at the bill link if you want to see what the House version looks like). Each chamber’s preferred language is now pending in the other chamber, passing each other like ships in the night and presaging a stand-off reminiscent of the past few sessions in which bail bond reform legislation would pass one house but not the other. How this impasse will be resolved—or if it will be resolved—remains to be seen.”
