Abstract:     
This commentary summarizes some of the institutional obstacles to serious reform the authors encountered in their work on two recent criminal-code redrafting efforts, in Illinois and Kentucky. The authors call for a project to create a Model Penal Code Second, in the hope that such a centralized, high-profile, and less directly politically charged or biased effort would be an effective spur to major reform at the state level.
