Del. Jennifer McClellan Signs On to the Statewide Indigent Defense Study Bill

Good News!  I just heard that Del. Jennifer McClellan has co-sponsored the statewide indigent defense study bill:

2016 SESSION

SJ 51 Comprehensive indigent defense system; State Crime Commission to study.

Where’s a Republican co-sponsor?  I do not know the deadline on it but I’d say contact Senator Dance and let her know you are on board!

In the meantime, can thank Del. McClellan (and the other co-sponsors) by clicking on her name and sending her office an email.

It is in Senate Rules chaired by MY senator:  Ryan McDougle.  Could you let him know that you’d like to see better indigent defense services in Virginia.  Here is his site for info.
