WASHINGTON, D.C. —In response to Sen. Chuck Grassley’s (R-Iowa) comments today on the Senate floor regarding conservative, free market opposition to price controls on prescription drugs, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to cosponsor the Prohibiting Punishment of Acquitted Conduct Act, S. 2566. Introduced by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and cosponsored by Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the Prohibiting Punishment of Acquitted Conduct Act would prohibit the practice of federal judges increasing sentences for charges for which the defendant has been acquitted.
