This bill requires courts to consider the full character and disposition of a defendant before setting bail.

This is so basic, why does it require a bill to do it?

I guess because we have judges and agencies that won’t do it.
Maybe because we have a bill that would disallow law enforcement from doing it.
It needs to be done at some point and this seems to be the last place to get it done and be safe.
