Urge Your Representatives to Support HB 1739
My name is _____ and I live in your district. I am calling
to urge you to support HB 1739, the Justice Safety Valve Act. This bill will
allow Missouri’s judges to depart from ineffective and expensive mandatory
and statutory minimum sentences in cases when the sentences are unjust and
unnecessary. These minimum terms have not made Missouri safer and it is time we
restore balance to our justice system.
This bill is pro-public safety and pro-taxpayer. We should pass
it this legislative session.
Thank you for your time and service to our state.
