Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2015

Senators Grassley, Cornyn and Whitehouse Introduce Criminal Justice Reform Bill

After months of behind the scenes negotiations in Washington, Senators Charles Grassley (R-IA), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, John Cornyn (R-TX), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), have introduced The Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2015. Following the Act’s introduction, Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Executive Director, Timothy Head, commented: “This bill has been a long time in the making but it was worth the wait. Chairman Grassley has led a deliberative and sober process to reach consensus on a package of much needed reforms to the criminal justice system that are measured in reach and already proven successful in states like Texas and Georgia.” “Not only will these reforms make our communities safer by focusing law enforcement resources on the most serious and violent offenders, they will also ensure we work to rehabilitate the prisoners that are returning to our communities further reducing crime rates, strengthening families and saving taxpayer dollars.” “Senators Durbin (D-IL), Leahy (D-VT), Lee (R-UT), Graham (R-SC), Schumer (D-NY), Booker (D-NJ), and Scott (R-SC) are also to be commended for their hard work and support. Faith and Freedom Coalition looks forward to working with this bipartisan coalition of Senators as well as leaders in the House of Representatives to move state-tested and proven criminal justice reforms through Congress and to the President’s desk.” For more information on the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2015, see the following documents: Bill Text One-page bill summary Section-by-section
