ABOUT the bill, here.
SIGN THIS PETITION, here.
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, this urgent call from State Rep. Judy Amabile (HD13 Boulder County): After PASSING THROUGH the HOUSE & SENATE, HB21-1211, Regulations of Restrictive Housing in Jails, is UNDER THREAT OF VETO By the GOVERNOR. The bill puts humane restrictions on the use of solitary confinement in large county jails. Fact sheet, here. Op Ed, here.
CSOC (County Sheriffs of Colorado) is asking Governor Polis to Veto HB21-1211. The reason for not wanting to comply is that it will cost money. The bill was heavily amended to make it easier for the jails to implement. It passed both the House and the Senate with large margins.
Please reach out to the Governor and tell him you don’t want this bill vetoed. Ask him how much money our loved ones’ lives are worth. Solitary confinement is tantamount to torture for people with serious mental illness. Having a mental illness is not a crime, and of course our loved ones should be in hospitals and not jails. They shouldn’t be subject to cruel and unusual punishment.
