Rep. Jenny Graham challenges restitution bill on House Floor
Rep. Jenny Graham (R-Spokane), challenges legal financial obligations bills on the House Floor on February 28. House Bill 1169 would allow the elimination of financial penalties placed by the courts to incarcerated individuals to pay restitution for court costs, public defender fees and victim judgements. Graham has concerns about the direction Washington state is headed and says the Legislature is enacting policies that favor criminals and ignore victims. She says elected officials are sending a message that “crime does pay” in Washington state.
