SEPTEMBER 15th: National Call-In Day to Support Senate Passage of the National Criminal Justice Commission Act!
- I am calling to ask the Senator to prioritize and support immediate Senate passage of the House-passed National Criminal Justice Commission Act, H.R. 5143/S. 714, because:
- Having a transparent and bipartisan Commission review and identify effective criminal justice policies would increase public safety.
- The increase in incarceration over the past twenty years has stretched the system beyond its limits. These high costs to taxpayers are unsustainable, especially during these tough economic times.
- The proposed commission would conduct a comprehensive national review – not audits of individual state systems – and would issue recommendations – not mandates – for consideration.
