In July 2022, the Task Force to Study Transparency Standards for State's Attorneys was authorized by the General Assembly (Chapter 141, Acts of 2022).
The Task Force is to study the possibility of establishing minimum transparency standards for State’s Attorneys, and expanding the data collection and disclosure requirements set by law in 2022 to include cases of the District Court (Chapter 141, Acts of 2022). It will examine any existing policies of State’s Attorneys’ offices across the State that relate to transparency of data, charging of crimes, and sentencing. Further, the Task Force is to develop processes by which prosecutors can collect information and determine what should be made public and what should remain private. To expand data collection and reporting, the Task Force is to make recommendations on potential changes in law.
Authorization for the Task Force ends June 30, 2024.
