Congress' New Bills Show How Conservatives Are Still Tough on Crime

BY Adam Brandon and Grover Norquist

Recently, a few notable organizations have added their voices in support of criminal justice reform efforts in the Senate. The International Association of Chiefs of Police, the Major County Sheriffs' Association, Concerned Veterans of America and the National District Attorneys Association — none of which are soft on crime — agree: The Senate's Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act isn't either.

Legislators Push Conservative Policies Forward to Get Louisiana Back to Work

Part of a strong economy, both at the federal and state level, is a functional and healthy workforce. When a significant portion of your population is incapable of securing employment, crime rates go up and government funds become more significantly strained.

Recent Abuse of Forfeiture Law Highlights Need for Reform in Oklahoma

FreedomWorks has been a strong supporter of civil asset forfeiture reform. In the past we’ve put forward stories like that of Mandrel Stuart whose money was seized by the Fairfax County police, leading to the eventual loss of his restaurant. Another case in North Carolina saw Lyndon McClellan’s bank account wrongfully seized by the Internal Revenue Service.

David Perdue Wrong on Justice Reform

On Thursday, a bipartisan group of senators, led by Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), unveiled improvements to the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act, S. 2123. The measure is designed to reform federal sentencing policies, bring substantive rehabilitative programming to federal prisons, address the growing costs of incarceration, and enhance public safety by focusing on reducing prisoners’ risk of recidivism.

Oklahoma and Georgia Governors Sign Conservative Justice Reform Bills into Law

This past Wednesday, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin signed a package of justice reform bills into law, making the Sooner State the latest conservative state to adopt these “smart-on-crime” policies. That same day, Gov. Nathan Deal, on the other side of the country in Georgia, signed a smaller justice reform package into law, expanding on the state’s already impressive portfolio of justice reform initiatives. With the simultaneous adoption of these justice reform measures into law, conservative states like Oklahoma and Georgia are the pioneers in effective justice reform.

Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act Continues Conservative Efforts on Justice Reform

In October, a bipartisan group of senators, led by Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), introduced the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act, S. 2123. This historic bill was the product of months of negotiations between some of the most conservative and progressive members of the upper chamber. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), for example, played key roles in the negotiations and were on hand when the bill was formally rolled out. FreedomWorks released a letter of support for the bill shortly after it was marked up in committee.
