Criminal Justice Reform

The House Judiciary Committee is working on a bipartisan basis on several bills to improve the criminal justice system. These bills will ensure that our federal criminal laws and regulations appropriately punish wrongdoers, are effectively and appropriately enforced, operate with fairness and compassion, protect individual freedom, safeguard civil liberties, work as efficiently as possible, do not impede state efforts, and do not waste taxpayer dollars.

On November 18, 2015, the House Judiciary Committee began a series of markups to begin reforming the US Criminal Justice System.
