From Congressman David Trone:

“In too many places in the United States, the overuse and misuse of pretrial detention has resulted in unnecessarily large jail populations with unacceptable racial and ethnic disparities,” said Lars Trautman, Senior Fellow at the R Street Institute. “This bill will help improve our pretrial system by providing support to local jurisdictions trying to innovate toward a fairer, more equitable, and accountable pretrial system.”
