Talking about the RJA, Doug Clark has a great post in his On the Record blog. He calls for the repeal of the RJA. We here at Civitas have pointed out, both in print and online, that the Racial Justice Act is a bad piece of legislation. It is good to see that someone out there is calling for it to be repealed. Hopefully some of the newly elected legislators are listening.
If the legislature is truly looking to save money a quick repeal will literally save MILLIONS of dollars. When passed the fiscal staff of the legislature said they couldn’t even estimate a price tag to go with this bill – that is scary.
Of course Doug better look out because William Barber of the NAACP will make him his next target!
