Criminal justice reform: Business as usual is not an option

“In state after state, criminal justice reform has led to lower incarceration rates, lower crime rates, and lower recidivism rates. It’s time Massachusetts joins the national let’s-get-smart-on-crime movement. This bill protects public safety and makes common-sense reforms while improving outcomes with our precious tax dollars.”
— Massachusetts Senate President Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst)
