FreedomWorks Joins Nation’s Largest Transpartisan Coalition for Criminal Justice Reform

An unlikely alliance of progressive and conservative groups has formed to pursue an aggressive effort to reform America’s criminal justice system. The Coalition for Public Safety will be the largest national effort working to pursue comprehensive criminal justice reforms that will reduce jail and prison populations and associated costs, and end the systemic problems of over-criminalization and over-incarceration.

Support Senate Bill 133 in Kentucky to Focus Corrections Resource on True Public Safety Threats

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community in Kentucky, I urge you contact your senator and urge him or her to support Senate Bill 133 to protect incarcerated women in Kentucky and refocus corrections resources on true public safety threats. This bill concentrates on the drivers of female incarceration in Kentucky, currently home to the second highest rate of female incarceration nationally, more than twice the national average, while also providing greater protections to those incarcerated in jails and prisons across Kentucky, particularly for pregnant women in custody.

Issue Analysis

Expansion of the Federal Safety Valve for Mandatory Minimum Sentences

The Sentencing Reform Act and the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act offered several modifications to federal sentencing laws. Although these bills did not go as far as the Smarter Sentencing Act, introduced by Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), they were improvements over the status quo.

Support the Fair Chance Act, H.R. 1905 and S. 842

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and representative and ask them to support the Fair Chance Act, H.R. 1905 and S. 842, introduced by Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Reps. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Darrell Issa (R-Calif.). This bipartisan legislation would aid prisoner reentry into society and lower crime rates, by delaying inquiries into criminal history for federal job and federally contracted applications until the conditional offer stage.

Peach State Justice: Successes of Smart on Crime Policies in Georgia

When confronted with a rapidly rising prison population, which had grown exponentially between 1982 and 2011 from 13,884 prisoners to almost 56,000, newly-elected Georgia Governor Nathan Deal decided to take action to address the problem of overincarceration in his state. By adopting smart on crime policies to reinvest limited resources into violent criminals that need to be in prison and into rehabilitative measures for those who can contribute to society, Gov. Deal’s three-phase initiative continues to be a huge success, both for public safety and fiscal savings.

Support the SAFE Justice Act, H.R. 4261

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to co-sponsor the Safe, Accountable, Fair, Effective (SAFE) Justice Act, H.R. 4261, introduced by Reps. Bobby Scott (D-Va.) and Jason Lewis (R-Minn.). The bill would focus resources on violent and career offenders, implement evidence-based programs to reduce recidivism, restore congressional intent to certain mandatory minimum sentences, and address over-criminalization in federal criminal statutes and regulations and over-federalization of criminal law.
