National Call-In Day November 16th!


Join us on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16th for the NATIONAL CALL-IN DAY to support Senate passage of THE NATIONAL CRIMINAL JUSTICE COMMISSION ACT.

 

On Tuesday, Nov 16th:

Call the following two key Senators to ask them to prioritize and support Senate passage of the House-passed National Criminal Justice Commission Act, S. 714 (H.R. 5143), as soon as possible:

•             Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), 202-224-5556

•             Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), 202-224-3135

When calling Senators Reid & McConnell on Nov 16, here is a useful guide:
“Hi, my name is ____ and as a taxpayer I am calling to ask the Senator to support immediate Senate passage of the House-passed National Criminal Justice Commission Act, S. 714, so that problems in the criminal justice system can be identified and ultimately be fixed.”

 

BACKGROUND INFO:

As you know, in 2009, Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) and 15 bipartisan co-sponsors introduced the National Criminal Justice Commission Act, legislation that would create a bipartisan Commission to review and identify effective criminal justice policies and make recommendations for reform.  The House of Representatives and Senate Judiciary Committee have reviewed and favorably passed the bill and it is now awaiting passage by the United States Senate.  Just a few weeks remain in the Senate’s legislative calendar. If theNational Criminal Justice Commission Act does not pass this year, the legislation must be reintroduced and advance through both Houses again in 2011. Please help us urge the Senate to prioritize and pass this important legislation as soon as possible!
