H3450: An Act relative to the classification and punishment for certain offenses in the commonwealth

This bill reclassifies some low level, non-violent felonies as misdemeanors. For example, the bill increases the amount for felony shoplifting from $250 to $950. The dollar amounts have not been adjusted upward for years. Conviction of a felony is a life-long obstacle, and we should be scrupulous about which crimes truly merit that classification.
