Right on Crime Effort on Front Page of Austin American-Statesman…Again

| January 23, 2013

Marc Levin was quoted in this story by Mike Ward in the Austin American-Statesman. The article points out that there is a lot more momentum behind criminal justice reform partly due to Levin’s work to get the Texas Association of Business on board with Right on Crime.

“The Legislature this year has an opportunity to take the next step,” said Marc Levin, director of the Center for Effective Justice at the conservative Texas Public Policy Foundation. Levin helped bring in the support of the Texas Association of Business to push the smarter-on-crime agenda.

“The current system is a drag on our vitality as a state. The more people we can get into less costly treatment and rehabilitation programs that are successful, the better off we’ll be,” he said.


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.
