Wyoming Governor Signs Legislation Aimed at Reducing Recidivism
In February, Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon signed a package of Justice Reinvestment legislation into law. These bills aim to reduce recidivism 25 percent by fiscal year 2024 and avert up to $18.1 million in costs that can be reinvested in increasing the availability and effectiveness of community-based behavioral health treatment for people on probation and parole.
