Meet in the Capitol Rotunda at this time to get the overview of the day’s activities and recommended talking points with legislators prior to the Administration of Criminal Justice Committee that will begin at 9 AM.  We will be sending people to the Criminal Justice Committee in waves as people arrive to get seats – it will likely be crowded.
