Schuette Warns Against Rushed Prison Reform in Lame Duck Session

As elected leaders chosen to uphold the Constitution, a guiding principle must be to never compromise the safety of Michigan citizens and families. Currently, significant prison reform legislation is on the table for the lame-duck session that may put public safety at risk.

A.G. Schuette notes that he responsibility to protect the public cannot and should not be rushed. Public safety is a top priority and any changes to the justice system deserve careful consideration. If passed, this legislation would prematurely release violent criminals back into our neighborhoods and public safety would be compromised. The safety and security of our citizens must not be put at risk by rushing major policy changes during the midnight hour of Lame-Duck session.

In his letter to the legislature, Attorney General Schuette addresses several areas of concern with the legislation.  Read the letter here.
