Today the California State Legislature sent a historic bill to the Governor that will fundamentally change California's pretrial release and detention system. This bill creates a fairer, safer, and more just system. We are hopeful that the Governor signs this bill into law and look forward to working with the legislature and Governor's administration to implement a system that protects the public and the due process rights of all Californians.

I would like to add that the bill reflects the labors of many over a two-year period and I know that Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye appreciates those efforts and the exhaustive study of this topic by her Pretrial Detention Reform Workgroup
