CSDA is sponsoring SB 1292 (Stone), which promotes the integrity of the grand jury system and assists the grand jury in increasing the accuracy of their publically released reports, while maintaining the fundamental principles of the civil grand jury as an independent watchdog. Specifically, this bill:
- Requires each grand jury to hold an exit interview with the subject of their investigations to discuss the findings of the report.
- Affords grand juries with the option of providing a draft of their findings to the subject of the report in order to receive initial comments on the draft.
- Grants the subject of an investigation the option to provide comments on the report that will be released and posted with the grand jury report at the time it is made publically available.
