·         New technology will allow you to resolve a minor civil infraction or a traffic ticket without stepping foot in a courtroom. It’s called The Online Court Project.

·         In 1980, Michigan’s corrections budget was 3% of the state’s general fund, now it is more than 20% of the general fund. What caused this increase, and what do we do about it?
