Demand a Vote on Sentencing Reform
Petition to Senator McConnell:
I urge you to bring the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act, S. 2123, up for a vote in the Senate right away. This bipartisan bill would reduce harsh, lengthy mandatory minimum sentences for some drug offenses, allow judges to use their discretion to sentence people below the minimum in certain cases, and help fix our broken criminal justice system.
Leaders from both sides of the aisle are finally recognizing that the war on drugs has failed and that harsh sentencing laws have had disastrous consequences on our communities. It’s time to fix our criminal justice system.
Please allow the Senate to vote on the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act.
