From the TVW synopsis: "Anti-gang legislation is stirring debate over public safety and civil rights. Host Austin Jenkins interviews Attorney General Rob McKenna, and hosts a panel discussion with an ACLU representative, a police officer, and an ex-gang member."
We also had a new announcement about our gang bill today:
Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna and Representative Charles Ross, R-Naches, today announced a new proposal to fund programs that prevent young people from joining gangs and offer ways for current gang members to find a way out.
McKenna and Ross suggest setting aside a portion of money from consumer protection settlements negotiated by the Attorney General’s Office—approximately $1 million per year—for an account dedicated to such programs. Language creating the program will be introduced today to a bipartisan bill, sponsored by Rep. Ross and Rep. Christopher Hurst, D-Enumclaw.
Stay tuned for more updates.
