New Jersey lawmakers are letting voters decide on part of an overhaul of the state's bail system.
The Assembly voted Monday to put forth a constitutional amendment to eliminate the right to bail for all people accused of violent crimes.
The lawmakers also passed a law creating a non-monetary bail system for low-level offenders who can't afford bail.
The Senate already approved the amendment and the law.
The amendment will be on the ballots in November.
