Vallario shows his hand on electing judges
In the floor exchange this morning, one delegate worried that the language in a proposed sex offender bill allowed judges too much discretion over sentencing and supervision.
House Judiciary Chairman Joseph F. Vallario shot back.
“Judges will be responsible for their decisions,” Vallario hollered on the floor. “That is why we elect them. We have elected them for the last 200 years and hopefully we will continue.”
The Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee has not yet voted on the measure, SB 833. The House version, HB 1385, also not had a committee vote.
