Continue Justice Code Modernization

Kentucky made important progress with the enactment of corrections reform legislation in 2011 and juvenile justice code reforms in 2014 to protect public safety while establishing a system to control spiraling corrections costs. The Chamber will continue to monitor this important work moving forward as part of the newly formed Kentucky Smart on Crime which focuses on reducing recidivism, making communities safer, increasing our workforce and saving taxpayer dollars. We also encourage the General Assembly to continue reviewing the Kentucky Penal Code with the goal of creating more alternatives to incarceration for low-level, non-violent crimes and focus on jail time for more serious offenses.
