Time to pass the First Step Act

BY Adam Brandon

The Senate, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), has a prime chance to change its reputation and pass a landmark piece of conservative legislation. It arises on the issue of criminal justice reform that has strong bipartisanship across all ideological spectrums. Although most of the bipartisanship we see in the Senate coalesces around bad policy, such as wasteful spending, mass surveillance, and more, the bipartisanship in this instance is directed at very good policy.

TODAY: FreedomWorks Hosts Digital Day of Action in Support of First Step Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- FreedomWorks is hosting its Digital Day of Action today in support of the First Step Act, which currently awaits action in the Senate. The First Step Act is a bipartisan, common sense bill that utilizes evidence based policies to lower crime rates, enhance public safety, save taxpayer dollars, and help fix the United States’ broken justice system.

Congress must make sentencing reform priority for public safety

BY Jason Pye

Modest sentencing reforms may be added to prison reform legislation, the First Step Act, currently pending in the Senate. The White House has been vocally supportive of prison reform, and President Trump has appeared to warm to the possibility of adding sentencing reform to the bill.

Critics are wrong on First Step Act that can fix criminal justice system

BY Jason Pye

In May, the House of Representatives passed the First Step Act, H.R. 5682, by a vote of 360 to 59. The bill would implement risk assessments and recidivism reduction programming in federal prisons, as well as incentivize certain nonviolent prisoners to reduce their risk of reoffending through earned time credits that can be “cashed in” for placement in pre-release custody.

End the Fear-Mongering, Crime Is Going Down

Perhaps one of the most misleading comments in the past few years is that the United States is seeing a new crime wave develop. Politicians who have long pushed for lengthier prison sentences seized on increases in violent crime and homicides in 2015 and 2016 as justification to oppose legislation in Congress that would bring rehabilitative programming designed to reduce recidivism to federal prisons and modestly reform federal sentencing laws.

Florida's Amendment No. 11 is Necessary to Address Over-Incarceration

As the 2018 midterm elections approach, voters in all 50 states will cast their ballots for members of Congress and many will cast their ballots for senators. Some ballots will also include measures independent of the national elections. These are, for example, gubernatorial races, as well as ballot initiatives to amend state constitutions.
