Tom Cotton Is Wildly Wrong About Justice Reform

The effort to reform the federal prison system is gaining a lot of attention. President Donald Trump has expressed support for prison reform on multiple occasions, including a mention in his State of the Union address and, most recently, during a meeting with a group of African-American pastors.

The budget passed the Senate by a vote of 71 to 28 and the House by a vote of 240 to 186. Sixteen Republicans voted against the budget in the Senate and 67 in the House.

Ways and Means Republicans Demand Answers from DOJ on Refusal to Return Wrongfully Seized Money

Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee want to know why the Department of Justice (DOJ) has denied petitions by Americans whose money was seized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The seized money was subject to federal civil asset forfeiture hearings in which the individual from whom the money was taken had to prove that it wasn’t connected to any wrongdoing.

Legislation to Curb Eminent Domain Abuse on the House Floor Today

The Private Property Rights Protection Act, H.R. 1689, is scheduled for action today in the House of Representatives. The bill is a response to the Supreme Court's decision in the Kelo v.
