The Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act
The Senate Judiciary Committee has passed the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act, a comprehensive bill that reflects a more proportional and restorative approach to criminal justice and incarceration. This legislation will give federal judges more flexibility and reduce mandatory minimum sentences for drug crimes. The bill also includes reforms to increase federal prison programs, protect youth in custody, inventory federal crimes, and ensure more accurate FBI background checks, among others.
