Numero sIETE: Happy NEW YEAR!
Well, it is official! The legislative session began on January 10, and there is already a flurry of activity in the Capitol as hundreds of bills have already been filed. As you know, TCDLA invests significant time, energy, and staff in legislative efforts. TCDLA pursues reform to criminal justice issues to ensure that our clients are protected from efforts to diminish their constitutional and statutory rights. We do that by proposing and advocating for changes to procedural and substantive issues, tracking and monitoring all of the bills that might impact our membership and our clients, and opposing any and all efforts to curtail our clients’ rights.
