Christie discusses bail reform

Gov. Chris Christie will talk about tomorrow’s special legislative session about bail reform during a noon session at the State House. Watch it live here.

The state Senate was already scheduled to be at the State House to vote on bail reform measures but now, as per Christie’s call, the full Assembly will have to be in Trenton as well.

There are two components to the bail reform legislation. The first would amend the constitution to give judges the discretion to deny bail pending trial. If passed by both houses before Aug. 4, a question would be placed on the November 2014 general election ballot asking voters for their approval. The other facet is a bill that would set guidelines to determine bail eligibility and create bail alternatives for people charged with nonviolent crimes.
