The Michigan Senate just passed a series of Smart Justice bills that will put an end to locking people up for minor traffic violations, give judges more sentencing discretion, provide alternatives to jail for people with mental health issues, and reduce jail stays for misdemeanors.
Help us cross the finish line.
There are only a few voting days left in the legislative session to get these bills passed and on the Governor’s desk. Passing this legislation could prevent thousands of people from being needlessly arrested and jailed.
Your elected officials work for you. Let them know that you support equal justice, and you want your tax dollars to support Smart Justice. Ask your elected House Representatives to vote “yes” on House bills 5844-5857 and Senate bills 1046-1051.
