JUSTICE REINVESTMENT INIATIVE
Oklahoma House Speaker Kris Steele, Shawnee, left, was joined by Marshall Clement, right, and other members of a 20-member working group formed for the Justice Reinvestment Initiative process at a news conference at the state Capitol Wednesday morning, Jan. 11, 2012, to release the group's final report . The bipartisan group of leaders from across the state worked for more than six months to come up with solutions and suggestions on how to reduce violent crime in the state by as much as 10 per cent by 2016 and provide post-prison supervision for all felons while ultimately containing growth in prison costs. The report recommends a number of reforms in criminal justice policy projected to save $ 249 million over the next decade.
