As part of the agenda of the House, Representatives are afforded the opportunity to speak on any topic, which is called a remonstrance.
Representative Sanchez gave a remonstrance on May 24th, 2017, to the entire chamber of the House of Representatives on the true history of what came to be the United States Constitution.
Representative Sanchez spoke before the House Judiciary Committee on House Bill 3078 (Safety and Savings Act). This bill would authorize the Department of Corrections to increase reduction in term of imprisonment if an inmate meets certain criteria related to the participation in a family program. It would also eliminate mandatory sentences for certain property crimes when the defendant has prior property crime convictions.
