Legislation

It takes years of daily determination to exonerate the innocent and improve policies to prevent future wrongful convictions.  At the Montana Innocence Project we are privileged to take on these battles every day on behalf of our exonerated clients and innocent prisoners in Montana. But we cannot succeed without your help. We have three bill proposals before the Montana Legislature and legislators are most influenced by you—their constituents. Stay up-to-date on what’s happening with our bills. Write the legislators who are hearing the bills in committee. Come to hearings and testify. The wrongfully convicted in Montana need your help!

 

LC 1036—Interim study on compensation for wrongly convicted persons (Rep. Joel Krautter)

SB 172—Generally revise post conviction relief laws (Rep. Margie MacDonald)
