(St. Paul, MN) — Governor Tim Walz is proposing a justice reform effort. Walz announced a task force yesterday to reduce repeat offenders and increase neighborhood safety across the state. The Governor’s Council on Justice Reinvestment has representatives from all 87 counties, including tribal leaders. The governor says the goal is to improve community safety by increasing work opportunities for parolees to prevent them from committing new crimes and going back to jail. The effort will include a review of the state’s spending on community supervision.
