HARRISBURG — Gov. Tom Wolf is calling on lawmakers to pass a package of initiatives designed to reform the state's criminal justice system.

The initiatives include bail and pre-trial reforms.

They would also adopt a standard assessment tool for sentencing, create clean slate legislation to allow those convicted to re-enter society after being released, and make sure those without money have access to legal help.

Pennsylvania is the only state that does not provide state funding to a public defender system.
