Governor JR Pritzker is discussing some of the criminal justice reforms he’d like to see passed.

Governor Pritzker says he wants to look into ending cash bail, since many people are just sitting in jail because they can’t afford their bond. 

The governor says the ultimate goal is to reduce the prison population in Illinois, which now stands at about 40,000 inmates.
