On March 5, 2019 Executive Director John S. Cooper submitted written testimony to the House Judiciary Committee in support of House Bill (HB) 4129 – 30 & 4132.  Safe & Just Michigan has long supported creating a special parole for medically frail incarcerated people. HB  4129 ­‐ 30  &  4132  propose  an  important  first  step  to  fixing  this  problem: they  would  permit  some incarcerated people who  are  medically  frail  to be paroled to the appropriate medical or nursing facilities and would permit the cost of their care to be shifted from the Michigan Department of Corrections to Medicaid.
