Democratic California Senator Loni Hancock praises Texas for its conservative criminal justice reforms.
“Texas is investing in alternatives to incarceration that are proving to be cheaper and more effective at keeping people out of prison. It is also doing a better job of rehabilitating people to keep them from reoffending and ending up back in prison.
Texas and California are two great states that often see the world differently. In this case, perhaps we have something to learn from Texas.”
