Take the politics out of parole

Great news! The House has approved this bill and it has moved to the Senate for a vote. Click here to urge your Maryland state senator to support parole reform!

Maryland's parole system is broken for those serving parole-eligible life sentences. Our state is one of only three in the country where the governor must personally approve parole for lifers, a process that has become highly politicized.

Support House Bill 723 to take the politics out of parole in Maryland.

It's time to take the politics out of parole in Maryland. I ask that you support House Bill 723.

The 2,100 men and women serving parole-eligible life sentences in Maryland were sentenced with the understanding that if they proved themselves genuinely rehabilitated they would have a meaningful chance at parole. But they are now more likely to die in prison.

The problem is that Maryland's system is one of only three in the country where the Governor must personally approve parole for lifers, a process that has become highly politicized.
