Governor Kulongoski has signed an Executive Order, creating a new Public Safety Commission charged to find inefficiencies and excess spending within the State's Criminal Justice System. Members of the Commission, including Chief Justice Paul de Muniz will also make recommendations to the Legislature for comprehensive sentencing reform. The Governor has talked with Governor-elect Kitzhaber and he supports the new commission. Kulongoski said the public will have to be part of the process because recommendations to change mandatory sentencing law are likely to be suggested. They require a vote by the public.
