Senate Joint Resolution No 25: Study Use of Solitary Confinement
The 2017 Legislature recommended a study of the extent of the use of solitary confinement in state and county institutions when it enacted Senate Joint Resolution No. 25 (SJ 25). Legislators ranked the study 13th out of the 20 study resolutions in the postsession poll of interim studies. The Legislative Council met June 6 and assigned the study to the Law and Justice Interim Committee (LJIC).
The LJIC will study the issue during the 2017-2016 interim and expects to conclude with its study work no later than September 15, 2018. Study documents and any findings or recommendations, including those contained in bill drafts, will be posted to this page.
