Bring Successful Conservative Reforms to the Federal Prison System

BY Jason Pye and Patrick Purtill

The state-level criminal justice reforms enacted by conservatives in red states that have reduced recidivism rates and increased public safety are finally coming to the federal prison system. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) recently introduced the Prison Reform and Redemption Act, H.R. 3356, which will require federal prisoners to participate in programs designed to reduce recidivism rather than spending their time learning to be better criminals.

While Congress Stalls, Conservatives Are Scoring Big Wins at the State Level

As Congress returns from recess, we hold out hope that they will make better use of this session than the last one and work to fulfill their campaign promises. But even while politicians in the House and Senate were away from Washington this week, state legislatures remained active.

Conservatives' Continued Effort to Note the Importance of Justice Reform

Today’s current federal prison population remains above 200,000, costing taxpayers millions. For such a critical issue as justice reform why is it that lesser-deserving stories take up so much of the media’s attention?

Don’t Let Criminal Justice Reform Fall Victim To Congress’ Calendar

With the House set to adjourn on Sept. 30 and the Senate set to follow suit a week later, a number of bills deserving passage look increasingly likely to become casualties of the race for the exits as lawmakers head home to campaign for re-election.

The Argument for Justice Reform at the Federal Level

This month, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) hopes to bring a number of justice reform bills to the House floor. “We’ve learned that there are better ways to dealing with these problems than locking up someone for 20 or 30 years. You end up ruining their lives, ruining their families, hurting communities. And then when they try to reenter into society, they’re destitute,“ he said. Several bills, in fact, – including the FreedomWorks-backed Sentencing Reform Act, Recidivism Risk Reduction Act, and the Criminal Code Improvement Act – have already made it through the House Judiciary Committee.

Prominent Conservatives and Their Take on Justice Reform

The Republican Party has for a long time been perceived as the party that is not sympathetic to criminal justice reform. The common opinion is that those who favor the legalization of marijuana and other drugs are usually associated with the Democratic Party. This same rationale has been applied to justice reform as well. However, things have been changing now as the Republican Party continues a stronger and more public push to promote conservative ideals within our justice system.

The United States is THE world leader in incarceration. Over the last 10 years, however, the justice reform community has pushed in the direction of smart, evidence-based methods to reduce crime and improve public safety. States like Texas and Georgia, and more recently Alaska, Kansas, and Maryland, have discovered value in moving away from the “Tough on Crime” stance of the 80s and seeking reforms that reduce monetary costs and bring about significant savings for taxpayers. Champions of the cause like Senator Rand Paul, Senator Mike Lee, and Representative Justin Amash, are leaders of strong conservative and constitutional values, all scoring lifetime ratings of 99 percent or 100 percent on the FreedomWorks’ Congressional scorecard.
