Pending amendment would require public hearing before pardons can be granted
Rep. David Baria (D - Bay St. Louis) and Rep. Bobby Moak (D - Bogue Chitto) have offered an amendment to the Parole Board extension legislation that would require a public hearing before any pardon may be granted. It will be interesting to see how the vote goes. The amendment is being debating at this moment.
