Oppose: These bills would erect significant barriers for community bail funds that provide crucial resources for individuals who are too poor to pay for their release, as well as provide a needed safety valve for counties. They expand pretrial detention and undermine the presumption of innocence that is central to our criminal legal system.

Update July 19, 2021: HB 2 was voted out of House committee and SB 6 was voted out of the full Senate.
