At the 2015 League Convention in Pittsburgh, the delegates approved a state-wide study of the criminal justice system. A state-wide committee was formed in August, and the members have been hard at work since that time.
The issues are incredibly complex, and the committee has tried to bring together the most important information related to the elements of the study that was approved. The resultant Study Guide and Consensus Questions are evidence of their hard work.
The study guide and consensus questions are available here.
