Malloy tells DC audience bail reform on his agenda in 2017
from The Connecticut Mirror
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy told a criminal justice conference in Washington D.C. he intends make another attempt in 2017 at bail reform, one of his "Second Chance Society" initiatives that never came to a vote in 2016. Malloy, a leader in a bipartisan national movement to reverse decades of policies that have given the U.S. the highest incarceration rate in the world, said he will seek changes to minimize the number of inmates locked up pretrial because of their inability to afford bails ranging from a dollar to $2,000.
