center_img Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The House is expected to cast final votes on House Bill 312, a sweeping crime bill that will alter the state’s current pretrial system. In February, HB 312 passed the Alaska House of Representatives by a vote of 31-1, and yesterday, the bill passed the Alaska Senate by a vote of 19-0. Another item in the bill allows judges to consider out-of-state criminal records at bail hearings, which was not included under the current pretrial system.last_img
