THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
A new law that begins March 31 will restrict the use of long-term solitary confinement in state prisons. In most cases, it will be against the law to hold someone in solitary confinement for more than 15 consecutive days. The HALT Solitary Confinement Act also prohibits segregated confinement for jailed people who are pregnant, minors, people with disabilities, or those age 55 or older. Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who signed the bill into law, said confinement of more than 15 days was “inhumane punishment” that caused some to experience emotional and physical trauma that could last for years.
Do you support restricting the use of long-term solitary confinement in state prisons?
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
A bill signed into law last week will make it a crime to use a fake Covid-19 vaccination card. Violators can be charged with a misdemeanor under the state’s forgery laws. The new law also makes it a felony for anyone to intentionally enter, alter or destroy electronic computer records of Covid-19 vaccinations. It was already against federal law to use a fake Covid-19 vaccination card.
Do you support the new law making it a crime to use a fake COVID-19 vaccination card?
