Amid Budget Gridlock, Bipartisan Work Hailed For Louisiana Criminal Justice Reform

The Smart on Crime coalition hailed the reform package. “Legislators have put Louisiana on the path to shedding its reputation as America’s prison capital while saving tax dollars and keeping families safe. The data is clear: Criminal justice reform is right for our state,” said Jay Lapeyre, Smart on Crime Louisiana Steering Committee member and chief executive officer of Laitram LLC.
