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.
