Austin Ordinance Passed to Help End Jail for Tickets

TFDP and other advocates have been working on this ordinance for months, and we’re thrilled that the Austin City Council unanimously decided to pass it last night. Thank you especially to Council Member Garcia and her staff for championing this ordinance, which will help countless low-income Austinites take care of their tickets and escape a terrible cycle of debt and incarceration.
