Check out this article in Fort Worth Weekly, which is about our work over the past few years. Below are a couple of excerpts.

Texas, a state where elected officials have historically bragged about how many criminals they’ve sent up the river, is now a national model for corrections reform, as several other states have adopted laws similar to the reforms prompted by Madden and Whitmire.

“The earlier you break the pipeline, the less it costs us,” said Madden, of Plano, former chairman of the House Corrections Committee, who retired from the legislature earlier this month.


RIGHT ON CRIME is a national campaign to promote successful, conservative solutions on American criminal justice policy—reforming the system to ensure public safety, shrink government, and save taxpayers money. By sharing research and policy ideas and mobilizing strong conservative voices, we work to raise awareness of the growing support for effective reforms within the conservative movement. We are transforming the debate on criminal justice in America.
