Criminal Justice Committee, Vivione Marshall (email@example.com) and Richard Rifkin (firstname.lastname@example.org), Co-Chairs
During the recent budget negotiations, reform of certain parts of our criminal justice system became a central piece of the discussions between the governor and the legislative leaders. There were significant differences with regard to this subject, but in the end a compromise was reached. That compromise resulted in amendments to the laws affecting bail and discovery in criminal cases.
