FAMM Applauds Senate Passage of the First Step Act

WASHINGTON – FAMM President Kevin Ring issued the following statement today in response to the U.S. Senate’s bipartisan passage of the First Step Act (S. 3747) by a vote of 87 to 12:

“This is not simply a matter of policymaking to us. This is about people – specifically, the people we have gotten to know in the last 27 years while promoting these reforms. This bill is a first step to a more sane system of justice, but the fight isn’t close to being over. While the First Step Act will not undo decades of bad policy overnight, it promises to be the first step in a long overdue culture change in our federal justice system.”
