If signed into law Kentucky Senate Bill 120 will bring significant changes to the state's criminal justice system.

Kentucky Senate Bill 120 has been approved by both the Kentucky House and Senate and seems likely to move out of the General Assembly and on to Governor Matt Bevin's desk for his signature. If signed into law, the legislation would bring major reforms to the Kentucky criminal justice system.

Joining us to discuss details of Senate Bill 120 and what changes it would bring to the criminal justice system in the state is Holly Harris, executive director of the US Justice Action Network. The organization is a strong proponent of the legislation.
