Coalition Requests House Concurrence on Senate Amendment to H.308 (Racial Justice Bill)

Madam Speaker, Representative Krowinski, Madam Chair, and Representatives Morris, Gonzalez and Christie,

Key members of the coalition have been in discussion surrounding H.308 and have concluded that though all stakeholders were required to compromise, the consensus has created a product (H.308) that does satisfy the coalition’s original intent of the legislation.

We thank the House leadership, judiciary chair and bill sponsors for their work to date and earnestly request that they please consider concurring with the Senate’s Amendment. We have concluded that to do otherwise will delay and potentially jeopardize the passage of this racial justice reform bill that we have all worked so hard to get accomplished this year. We therefore implore House concurrence with the proposed Senate amendment to enable immediate adoption.

Thank you!

Racial Justice Reform Coalition
