Rep. Tony McCombie was named as the Republican Spokesperson on the Restorative Justice Committee for the 102nd General Assembly.
McCombie said in a release, “There is so much headway that can be made through bipartisan reforms addressing topics like children of incarcerated parents, working toward rehabilitation instead of recidivism through facilities like the Life Skills Center in Kewanee, and more.”
“That work is only possible, though, if we have a fair process to hear witnesses on both sides of each issue,” McCombie said. “That is why I am so excited to work with Chairperson Kelly Cassidy on this committee. We covered some really tough issues together in the Judicial Criminal Law Committee, but I always trusted that she sought a fair committee process, and I have every reason to know she’ll bring that same sense of fairness to her (chairmanship) of the Restorative Justice Committee.”
