WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to President Trump’s decision today to nominate Mick Mulvaney, Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), as acting White House Chief of Staff, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) filed cloture on the motion to concur to the House amendment to S. 756. The bill will serve as the vehicle for the First Step Act, the prison and sentencing reform bill supported by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and urge them to vote YES on the First Step Act amendment to S. 756, sponsored by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). The First Step Act would reform the federal criminal justice system to make our communities safer by reducing crime and focusing limited resources on the most dangerous offenders.
