Criminal justice reform advocates are getting a thorough airing of their proposals, with some changes in law already passed. 

Oregon is one of several states where the legislature is considering bills to change the juvenile justice system, so people do not enter the justice system as children and stay there for life.  

The senate passed a comprehensive overhaul bill, SB 1008, on Tuesday.  The bill goes to the house.

The ACLU of Oregon is one of the groups pushing for juvenile justice reform.  Executive Director David Rogers and Policy Director Kimberly McCullough visit with details.
