Making The Case For Bail Reform

Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito was  in Springfield on Thursday to talk about safety concerns with local law  enforcement. 

Polito spoke at the YWCA of Western Massachusetts about a  bill backed by Governor Charlie Baker's administration which reforms  bail procedures for repeat violent offenders, proposed after two police  officers were killed in eastern Massachusetts earlier this year.  

The  bill is currently in a House committee.  It is unclear whether there is enough votes to get the bill out of committee.

Support for the bill was  expressed by Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno and other officials in  attendance.
