Default Parson signs bevy of criminal justice, public safety bills

Parson signs bevy of criminal justice, public safety bills: ‘We have to do a better job’
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Gov. Mike Parson signed several bills Tuesday afternoon related to public safety and criminal justice reform.

“As a former sheriff and law enforcement officer, I understand the challenges facing those working within the criminal justice system, and we have to do a better job,” Parson said in a statement. “These bills bring bipartisan reform to Missouri’s criminal justice system while also promoting public safety and supporting our local prosecutors.”

Parson put his stamp of approval on HB 192, championed by Republican Rep. Bruce DeGroot, and SB 1 from Democratic Sen. Kiki Curls.

My husband is serving a parolable Life sentence and will have 28 years in when we see the board on the 6th of September. My question is is that House BIll 192 on page 47 that a life shall be calculated at 30 years. Does that mean just 30 years. Is it a new law?

Reading Statutes gets complicated IMHO. You have to consider all the "ifs, ands, or buts" and check any other Statutes referenced. I'm not an attorney, but I believe that you can't just look at #47, that's too narrow. Gotta look at the Big Picture and all those "ifs, ands, or buts" I mentioned. See #s 45 - 58.
