This Texas Farmer is Pushing to Wipe Out Longstanding Court Debts

The CEO of Bonton Farms is calling for a bill that would wipe out lingering court debts for people who have been incarcerated.

The farm in a South Dallas neighborhood employs many formerly incarcerated people, so CEO Daron Babcock explains why this bill is personal for him.
