A staff summary of the Law and Justice Committee's 2015 - 2016 interim work is available here.
The LJIC is responsible for monitoring the activities of the Department of Corrections, the Department of Justice, and the Office of the Public Defender and any agencies that are administratively attached to those entities. The committee serves as the liaison to the Judicial Branch.
The committee is also responsible for carrying out interim studies as assigned by the Legislature and the Legislative Council. At its June 2015 meeting, the committee tentatively adopted a work plan that outlines its process for completing the interim's work.
Reports and other materials related to these topics will be posted on this site as they become available.
