HB 206 (Bail and Pretrial Release Amendments)
Libertas Institute supports this bill.
The bill reinforces Utahn's presumption of innocence by reforming pretrial release practices.
Libertas supports this bill. The purpose of bail is to ensure a person charged with a crime will show up for their court date. But cash bail has not always been an effective or fair way of accomplishing this. This bill takes the state in a better direction.
