Legislative Efforts

The House and Senate Committees have scheduled our priority legislation. Now we need your support. Your voice will help us advance the cause of crime victims.

Please take a few minutes to support the following legislation!


Senate Bill 842 was presented to the Judicial Proceedings Committee last week. This bill is referred to as the “Maryland Second Look Act” that allows ALL convicted criminals to have a new sentencing hearing after 20 years.

We at MCVRC are concerned about this bill and our Executive Director, Kurt Wolfgang, provided both written and oral testimony as such. We are asking our partners, other advocate groups and our community to reach out to legislators to oppose this bill.

We must continue to advocate for crime victims and their survivors, and we need your help.
