What do you say when it's all been said before?
The Texas Senate Criminal Justice Committee today will consider the committee substitute for SB 1266 by Whitmire -- Texas' long awaited probation reform package, adjusted to account for substantial public input. I'd planned to analyze the bill and several proposed amendments, but since other obligations precluded it (Catonya read the 101 page bill, she announced in the comments!), I've gathered together some past Grits posts regarding what's arguably the most important home-grown Texas criminal justice reform so far in the 21st century.
