Oppose: SB 21 is unfair and unconstitutional. While it masquerades as reform, the legislation would enrich the predatory bail industry, punish the poor, and trample on Texans' rights and freedoms. It would also increase poverty-driven mass incarceration and costs to county taxpayers.

Update April 12, 2021: This bill was reported favorably in committee and placed on the Senate intent calendar. Take action and tell your lawmakers to protect Texans, not bail industry profits.
