Sentencing reform bill moves forward in Senate

Many people in Georgia are tracking the progress of the First Step Act, proposed federal legislation for criminal justice reform that is backed by an unusual array of supporters from across the political spectrum. The U.S. Senate voted 82-12 to advance the revised legislation that would lead to a sentence reduction for some federal prisoners if adopted. The proposed bill is supported by President Donald Trump as well as prominent Democratic senators like Cory Booker as well as the American Civil Liberties Union. While the Senate's Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, had expressed opposition, he allowed the introductory vote to take place.
