Gov. Tom Wolf, surrounded by legislators and criminal justice advocates, recently signed two Justice Reinvestment Initiative (JRI 2) bills, hailing them as yet another successful bipartisan effort to make the state’s justice system fairer while keeping communities safe.

“I am here today to recognize the passage of the second part of the Justice Reinvestment Initiative, or ‘JRI 2,’” Wolf said. “These important pieces of legislation will cut red tape, reducing bureaucracy will result in savings of time and money, and we will reinvest those savings into criminal justice programs that reduce recidivism, increase public safety, and better serve victims of crime.”
