The Detroit Free Press shared an opinion article by Craig DeRoche, former House Speaker in Michigan’s legislature.
In the article, DeRoche highlights how Michigan trails only behind Ohio in COVID-19 cases among incarcerated people. This is a major challenge for leaders and communities.
From the article, DeRoche states:
Taking action to responsibly expedite the release of low-risk incarcerated people who are already within a year of their earliest possible release date is a one of the steps the governor can and should take.
