Statewide Sentencing and Corrections Legislation

2/15/2017

NCSL has partnered with The Pew Charitable Trusts' public safety performance project to report significant state sentencing and corrections legislation in this database.

Use this database to search recently enacted legislation by state, topic, keyword, year or primary author. To select multiple items (e.g., state or topic) in the database lists, click in the check boxes next to your desired selections. To select all items click on the "All Topics" or "All States" box. The full text of bills is now available by clicking on the bill number.

The database contains legislation enacted starting in 2010. For information on sentencing and corrections enacted legislation from previous years, see Significant Sentencing and Corrections Legislation in 2009 and Significant Sentencing and Corrections Legislation in 2007 and 2008. Bills may appear twice in carry over states. In these states, please check the last date of action to ensure the status of the bill reflects the appropriate year.

 

For faster performance, please use the fields below to filter your results. If nothing is picked, the default search is to include all topics and states in current session year. The full text of bills is available by clicking on the bill number. This feature is available for bills from 2015 and later.
