The Montana Innocence Project strives to educate and work on policy changes designed to prevent wrongful convictions. Accordingly, we have proposed three bills currently before the Montana Legislature.
SB 249 An Act Revising Laws Regarding Informant and Accomplice Testimony
Sponsor: Senator Nels Swandal
LC 2212 An Act Calling for Uniform Statewide Eyewitness Identification Standards
Sponsor: Rep. Jon Knokey
HB 632 An Act Clarifying Post-Conviction Relief Statutes and Standards
Sponsor: Rep. Shane Morigeau
We would appreciate your support of our work and these bills. If you would like to testify at the hearings or write your legislators on our behalf, please contact Lisa Mecklenberg Jackson (firstname.lastname@example.org), MTIP Executive Director, for more information.
