Short Description: 
The Oregon Legislature is considering two bills that would modify Measure 11

With a budget in freefall and an economy that just keeps getting worse, Oregon lawmakers are turning to the $1.6 billion cost of enforcing Measure 11's mandatory sentencing requirements. Two bills currently being considered would look at reviewing a prisoner's mandatory sentence at the midpoint while another would raise sentences for first degree rape while lowering sentencing requirements for lesser levels. Are lawmakers too timid or going too far? Join Jo Ann and Dave as they discuss how lawmakers are rethinking Measure 11.
