On the Issues

At the close of the 115th Congress, the First Step Act passed in the Senate (87-12) and House (358-36) and was signed by President Trump on December 21, 2018. This bill, which made major, positive changes to the federal prison system and modest federal sentencing reforms was the biggest bipartisan piece of legislation in recent memory. We will continue to look for those criminal justice reform issues where the left and the right can come together for a common goal.
