Limit Solitary Confinement   Did not Pass

SB 5413

Sponsors: Wilson, C.DarneilleDasDhingraFrocktHuntKudererLiiasLovelettNguyenSaldaña

Right now hundreds of people in Washington’s prisons are living in conditions that the international community calls torture and which mental health experts have found cause lasting physical and mental damage. For years the Department of Corrections has claimed that it has reduced its use of solitary, even partnering with reform-minded organizations such as the Vera Institute and AMEND. Despite these efforts, some people remain in solitary for years. SB 5413 would stop the use of this barbaric practice by limiting the use of solitary confinement to fifteen days and precluding its use on vulnerable groups entirely.  Read more about SB 5413 here.
