Bail reform—done right—is the next step in improving our criminal justice system. The conservative approach to bail reform prioritizes public safety, ensuring that a detainee’s release is determined not by his or her ability to pay, but rather is based on a smart evaluation of their risk of flight or re-offending. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has made bail reform a top priority this session. Join us as we discuss how to make our pretrial system fairer and our streets safer.
