In short — Andrew Cuomo likes to announce good ideas for criminal justice reform. But that's always after he's certain they can't actually happen.
Not to mention that the road to passing these reforms is that much harder given that Cuomo has promoted a Republican-led state senate, and refuses to call special elections for two (Dem) senate seats before budget negotiations, essentially sabotaging their chance of passage.
The reforms are substantive, and could make New York a much less punitive place for people who get arrested. BUT, as always with Cuomo, you have to look at the details — there's still an opt-out for people arrested for non-violent crimes to be denied pre-trial release at all.
