Mr. Pete Weir, representing the First Judicial District, testified in opposition to HB 18-1287. Mr. Weir explained that the commission has not fulfilled its mission to help reduce recidivism, and has become agenda-driven. He spoke in support of continuing the commission for two years to see if improvements can be made. Mr. Dave Young, representing the Seventeenth Judicial District and the Colorado District Attorneys' Council, provided examples supporting Mr. Weir's contentions, and discussed changes made to the commission. Mr. Young responded to questions regarding the state public defender sitting as the vice chair of CCJJ.
