Opportunity - Michigan Government Students Submit Ideas to Reform Criminal Laws

Michigan Residents invited to help eliminate, reform criminal laws

From an announcement provided by Michigan Representative Brett Roberts:

With nearly 1,000 sections, Michigan’s penal code is eight times larger than the Model Penal Code and substantially larger than other Midwest codes, according to a recent study by the Manhattan Institute for Public Research and Mackinac Center for Public Policy. Lawmakers are focusing on repealing unnecessary and outdated statutes, adjusting disproportionately high criminal penalties and ensuring that penalties are consistent for similar crimes.

People can participate in their state government by submitting ideas to reform outdated criminal laws to a legislative workgroup.   

High school government classes are encouraged to research Michigan laws and participate in the statewide reform as well. Residents can submit their ideas online.
