Legislative Materials

TFDP prepares materials for the Legislature and state agencies in support of policies that improve the criminal legal system. TFDP also publishes policy briefs and implementation guides to inform local officials and communities about new legislation and other policy developments.

2023 Legislative Agenda

We have a proactive legislative agenda for this upcoming 2023 legislative session. We hope to pass bills that will lift millions of license holds due to inability to pay fines and fees; automate the process and expand eligibility for nondisclosures; strengthen indigent defense;  and fines and fees reform that will increase the credit that people get for community service.
