Bill On Jail Time For Fines Moves To Senate Floor
(Denver, CO) -- A bill is moving to the state Senate floor that would prevent people who can't pay their fines from going to jail. It was passed through committee yesterday. The bill has already made its way through the state House. Under the proposal, those who can't pay would have to have a court hearing to explain why. It would then be up to a judge to decide how to resolve the issue.
