Protect FY21 Funding for Indigent Defense

10 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

I recently read that $2 million in FY21 funding for Utah Indigent Defense is on the chopping block. I urge you to continue the progress made toward improving the constitutionality of Utah’s indigent defense services. I understand that choices are hard right now. But indigent defense affects 80% of people hailed into Utah courts. It’s critical to keep our state moving forward, increasing the quality of indigent representation and access to justice for everyone.
