BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A group of Idaho lawmakers tapped to look at ways to improve the state’s criminal justice system will meet this week to talk about when their legislative efforts will go into effect.

The Criminal Justice Reinvestment Interim Committee will meet Wednesday at the Idaho Statehouse. They’ll hear from staffers with the Council of State Governments Justice Center, and they’ll discuss when the criminal justice legislation they passed last year will go into effect.

The committee has been looking at ways to keep Idaho’s prison population from growing. The state has one of the highest incarceration rates in the nation but one of the lowest crime rates.
