The retroactive effects of this proposal wouldn't be unconstitutional. It wouldn't increase the punishment for the crime or alter the definition of a crime.
I'm not sure how many of these cases are pending. If there are a number of them, then it is probably cheaper to fix the law now then have to spend the money litigating cases the state knows they are going to lose.
Who cares if someone who deserves the hard 50 gets out early? We can just give him the hard 50 on the next crime he commits. Surely, $35,000.00 is too much to pay for a couple more crimes. It can wait.
Sounds too expensive, and really, I think we can spend money (we don't have) better. Sick of the special interests in KS! Lets pay more attention to the folks that don't break the law than the ones in jail!
So they are asking for a special session to replace one unconstitutional sentencing statute with another unconstitutional sentencing statute (one that attempts to apply retroactively to crimes already committed)? Sounds like a good use of tax money. At least they'll also be adding to the cost of litigating these cases, which is also paid for by taxpayers.
