Details Still Getting Worked On NC Criminal Justice Reform
An array of groups and elected officials from both major parties support criminal justice reforms in North Carolina, but plenty of details still must be worked out. Legislators and representatives of these groups praised action so far by the House and Senate during a Tuesday news conference. Speakers emphasized four bills — three that passed the House last week and one omnibus measure that’s expected to clear the Senate this week. One question is whether House members will accept additional items contained in the Senate bill or insist on narrower changes. The future of police body camera changes in the Senate measure is also unclear.
