Governor Hochul and Lieutenant Governor Benjamin are making their case for changes to bail reform laws.

They wrote an Op-Ed in the New York Daily News saying the state should make it possible for judges to set bail in all felony cases involving illegal guns since that crime is not currently bail-eligible. They're also advocating making it possible for judges to set more restrictive pretrial conditions. However, both Hochul and Benjamin emphasize that bail reform laws have been successful and that the data doesn't suggest they're the main cause of an uptick in violence.
