Illinois Governor, Bruce Rauner, has formed a commission aimed at studying and making recommendations for a long overdue overhaul of the state’s crumbling criminal justice system. If successful, the goal is to significantly reduce the number of people (both adults and juveniles) that are sent to correctional facilities over the next ten years. Additionally, Rauner said, “We need to make sure we are rehabilitating inmates so they don’t commit crimes over and over again.” Let’s hope that this will be a successful bi-partisan effort to enact some much needed change that will not only enrich the lives of those being incarcerated by giving them a second change as well as saving the people of Illinois some money as well.
