AAI: Prosecutors Should Be Non-Partisan

Court gavellAdvance Arkansas Institute has released a new paper in their series of fantastic public policy briefs. This paper, entitled “Removing Partisanship from Prosecutors is in the Public Interest,” analyzes HB1412 that would do just that. It’s scheduled to appear before the Arkansas House today.

According to the paper,

removing party labels from prosecutor candidates is sound public policy: there is good reason to believe that public confidence in the fair and neutral administration of justice will be better justified in a system stripped of open partisanship.

If you’re interested in following the debate on the bill, you can watch the House live at ArkansasHouse.org
