Kim Reynolds on Crime

 

 


Priority to focus on prisoner re-entry, rehabilitation

I've made it a priority of this administration to focus on prisoner re-entry and rehabilitation, because our prisons shouldn't be one stop in a circle that leads back to prison. Last year, I signed legislation that protects employers who are willing to give returning citizens a second chance. I am renewing my support to amend our Constitution so that it no longer bars felons from voting after they've served their sentence.

Restore ex-felon voting rights

Our constitution takes away the voting rights of anyone convicted of a felony. Forever. The governor can restore those rights, and I have done that 88 times since taking office. But I don't believe that voting rights should be forever stripped, and I don't believe restoration should be in the hands of a single person. Our founders gave us a process to amend the constitution. Let's begin that process now. I believe Iowans recognize the power of redemption; let's put this issue in their hands.

Opposes reinstating the death penalty

Q. Do you support reinstating the death penalty?

Hubbell: We already have the death sentence, it's called life without parole. The only way you get out is in a box.

Reynolds: No.

Q. Do you favor legalizing marijuana for recreational use?

Reynolds: No

Hubbell: No

Q. Do you favor restricting fireworks again?

Reynolds: That's a local decision, no.

Hubbell: I think it's a local issue.
