For two decades Colorado lawmakers have enacted “tough on crime” legislation. But with a budget gap to close, and sentencing reform recommendations flowing out of the Colorado Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice (CCJJ), is it finally time to start being “smart on crime” instead? On this week’s Independent Thinking, State Representative Mark Waller (R-Colorado Springs) and State Senator Pat Steadman (D-Denver) join me to talk about the work of the CCJJ, and the chances of sentencing reform legislation coming out of this year’s General Assembly. That’s tonight at 8:30 PM on KBDI Channel 12. Re-broadcast the following Monday at 1:30 PM.
