Default Michigan passing more criminal justice reform

Also Michigan again passing criminal justice reform bill, but governor still has to sign

http://www.detroitnews.com/story/opi...form/86158232/

Just before summer recess, the Senate approved a 22-bill package designed to reform the state’s criminal justice system, with particular focus on probation and parole policies. These bills would set Michigan on a good path toward better use of corrections funding, and they would reduce excessive prison time.
“I can’t underestimate how important this (issue) is,” said Sen. John Proos, R-St. Joseph, chief architect behind the package, on the Senate floor after the package passed.
He’s right. The state spends about $2 billion on corrections annually, some of which is wasted on imprisoning offenders who could likely otherwise be rehabilitated with better programs.
