Reitz on Overcriminalization

Media coverage and MCPP, ACLU and Manhattan Institute panel discussion

Executive Vice President Mike Reitz and Miriam Aukerman, a staff attorney with the ACLU of Michigan, recently co-authored an Op-Ed in the Lansing State Journal outlining the “overcriminalization” of Michigan and how the Legislature can take steps to correct the problem.

Reitz in October co-authored a study on the issue with James Copland and Isaac Gorodetski of the Manhattan Institute. Reitz, Copland and Aukerman took part in a panel discussion at noon Wednesday in Lansing.
