Saying thank you is important!
Mass incarceration is considered a problem by politicians on both sides of the aisle, particularly because of mandatory sentences that are crowding our federal prisons with nonviolent offenders, costing taxpayers millions every year and keeping families apart. In fact, one in every 50 children has a parent in prison.
That’s why the U.S. Senate’s Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) are committed to moving the bipartisan Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act S.1917 again this year. The bill will lower mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenses and to apply sentencing changes to people currently in federal prison, thereby reducing costly mandatory sentences.
Both Utah Senators Lee and Hatch are co-sponsors of this bipartisan legislation. Let’s thank them for supporting this good bill!
