Measure Title: RELATING TO BAIL.
Report Title: Bail; Reasonable Amounts; Financial Circumstances
Description: Requires bail to be set in reasonable amounts based upon all available information, including the alleged offense, possible punishment upon conviction, and the offender's financial ability to afford bail. Repeals the requirement of an officer letting to bail to consider the punishment to be inflicted on conviction and the pecuniary circumstances of the party accused. Allows pretrial service officers to access other state agencies' data on an offender's wages and tax information for the limited purpose of determining an appropriate bail amount. (SD1)
