Assembly Republican Maria Rodriguez-Gregg, R – Burlington, Atlantic and Camden, said she was pleased the Assembly interrupted summer recess to approve badly needed bail reform to keep violent offenders off the streets while they await trial. Rodriguez-Gregg supported ACR-177, authorizing the courts to deny bail to dangerous defendants. She is also the sponsor of A-1910, the bill implementing the amendment.
“This is a significant step, making our towns and communities safer for New Jersey families and seniors. Once the voters approve the constitutional amendment in November, judges will finally have the authority to prevent the release of violent defenders on bail.”
