Comments

MRWBA Legislative Committee, tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

This bill would have eliminated all mandatory sentences in the Code (except for the aggravated murder of a law-enforcement officer) and created a work group to evaluate the feasibility of resentencing persons previously convicted of a felony punishable by a mandatory term of confinement.
