The future of criminal justice reform
Bipartisan criminal justice reform, which once seemed likely, is facing longer and longer odds. This week, Senate Majority Leader John Cornyn (R-TX), a key sponsor of the effort, admitted that the measure may not move at all this year.
“I am hopeful, but I don’t think it’s critical we do it this year,” Cornyn told the Associated Press. “I have been involved in a lot of fights around here that have taken us years to get things done.”
