To watch a video “Inside Scoop” that deals with legislative action in Virginia during the 2018 session go here.  The discussion on prison issues starts at the 1:58 mark where SALT (a VAPJN org.) founder John Horejsi discusses video visitation bill followed by solitary confinement bills and briefly school detention (school to prison pipeline) ending at the 8:11 mark.  Larceny threshold bill starts at the 23.15 mark followed by the driver’s licence denial due to court fees/fine bill. Other than those prison reform bills,  discussion centers on bills ranging from welfare increase, autism, TANF and provides a thorough legislative update.
