Reforming the Parole Board

I have had several opportunities over the course of the past few days to speak with different media outlets of my efforts to reform the parole board. Two bills of particular importance that are being heard in today’s Joint Committee on the Judiciary are Senate Bill #891, which I filed and is supported by members of both parties and both branches, and House Bill #434, also known as “Melissa’s Bill”.

Les Gosule, Melissa Gosule’s father, and I were guests on NECN’s “Broadside” with Jim Braude, WRKO’s Michele McPhee show, and Fox 25’s morning news. To listen to the segments please click on the media players or links posted below.

Please click “Read more” to read a press packet that was presented during a Monday press conference in support of the bills at the State House. The packet contains the actual language and summaries of the two bills.
