Restitution Reform Task Force

In May 2003, Attorney General Hardy Myers announced the formation of a task force to review the restitution system in Oregon. The Task Force includes a broad spectrum of participants from around the state. In addition to reviewing the status of restitution in Oregon, the group will look at programs throughout the United States to identify best practices and determine what improvements can be made in our own state.

The Task Force will conclude its work by January of 2003. Any legislative proposals will be submitted for the 2003 Legislative session.

The meeting times and agendas are posted below.
