Kentucky Smart on Crime is proud to announce that Senate Bill 120 has been passed!

This bill will help work towards public safety improvements that seek to put people who have been convicted of crimes back to work so they don’t return to crime and prison. SB 120 is a good first step toward a smarter, more effective justice system that holds people accountable and provides a pathway back to a productive life for those who’ve served their time.

SB 120 had broad support from lawmakers regardless of party affiliation, and received no “no” votes.
