Representative Gina McCabe joins national leaders to address public safety

Over the weekend, Rep. Gina McCabe, R-Goldendale, participated in a nonpartisan public-safety meeting hosted by the Council of State Governments West (CSG West) in Salt Lake City, Utah. McCabe has been a member of the CSG West Public Safety Committee since she took office in January 2015.

Policy areas discussed during the two-day meeting included: the cost of incarceration, mental illness in the criminal justice system, and indigent defense standards.
“Much of what we discussed are issues we are facing at home in the state of Washington,” said McCabe. “It's important as state lawmakers seek to tackle these issues throughout the country that we learn from each other's past efforts and strategies.”

CSG West is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that serves western legislatures in order for lawmakers to pursue and create solutions for issues facing the region. The Council of State Governments serves three other regions throughout the U.S.
