There is a national movement to change the way our judicial system works. Pretrial release is part of this system. Commercial bail is the only form of pretrial release that does not cost the state of Connecticut money. The implementation of this national agenda in Connecticut will eliminate 1000 jobs, cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars, pose an increased public safety issue, not to mention, do away with commercial bail as we know it. We cannot afford to ignore this fight. The BAC has not! Our Legislative Committee members have negotiated a "cease fire" and a "peace treaty" with those Connecticut Politicians who would further this agenda. Now is the time to make a difference. Please reach out to your senators and state representatives to support the bill and sign our petition. Thank you for your support.
