Christie Calls Special Legislative Session

Categories: legislative sessions, New Jersey

New Jersey state sealNew Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has called a special legislative session for Thursday, July 31. The session will convene at noon with Christie detailing his recommendations for amendments to the state’s bail system.

Christie is asking the legislators to consider a constitutional amendment allowing judges to deny bail to defendants considered dangerous or a flight risk, as well as legislation offering a non-monetary option for pre-trial release based on a risk assessment.

A constitutional amendment requires voter approval, and the amendment must pass both houses with 60 percent majorities by Monday, August 4, to make it on the ballot in November.
