Three U.S. Senators on Wednesday reintroduced a bill to create a National Criminal Justice Commission to assess the entire system and propose reforms.
“Our criminal justice system is built on equality and fairness under the law, but too many Michiganders and Americans encounter a flawed system,” said Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI), who introduced the bill with Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John Cornyn (R-TX).
“Our courts are overburdened, incarceration costs are unsustainable and all too often we see strained relationships between law enforcement officers and the communities they serve.”
