Jefferson City — This Week in the Missouri Senate reviews the way sentencing is handled for certain crimes, and how it may change in a few years. Even though Senate Bill 491 became law earlier this year, most of the elements of the new law won’t take effect until 2017. We’ve included actualities from Senate Minority Floor Leader Jolie Justus, D-Kansas City, and Sen. Bob Dixon, R-Springfield — both of whom sponsored this legislation — in this feature report narrated by Senate Communications Officer Dean Morgan.
