Justice Reinvestment in Michigan

Justice Reinvestment | Michigan

Alison Lawrence 3/4/2014

Michigan flagIn 2013, the Legislature instructed the Criminal Law Revision Commission to study the state’s sentencing laws and make recommendations for change. Using a justice reinvestment process, the commission is currently collecting and analyzing sentencing and offender data to identify drivers of corrections populations and costs. In early 2014, the commission will develop policy recommendations for consideration by the Legislature that will manage corrections resources and spending.


SB 233 (2013)

Instructs the Criminal Law Revision Commission to review the state's sentencing guidelines and practices, including studying length of stay and parole board discretion. Allocates $250,000 to the commission for the study.


Full summaries of legislation can be found in NCSL’s Sentencing and Corrections Enactment Database.
