Ranzenhofer calls for 'fresh start' in criminal justice reform law
Senator Michael Ranzenhofer issued the following statement this morning:
“The Governor has indicated that he intends to make changes to correct the flawed criminal justice reform as part of the NYS budget. I strongly believe that the law needs to be repealed and a fresh start is needed, with input from law enforcement, district attorneys and local government.
"I am very much opposed to something this important being tucked into the $178 billion budget. The NYS budget is already made more complicated this year by the $6.1 billion deficit. Bail reform has been a highly contested and debated topic and it should be considered on its own merit.”
