New Sentencing Reform Initiative Before Senate · High Times

Mandatory minimums would be reserved for violent offenders.

A bipartisan group of senators introduced legislation this week that would reduce prison terms for non-violent drug offenders, Reuters reports. Under the proposed reform, mandatory minimum sentences would be reserved strictly for those convicted of violent crimes.

The bill’s lead sponsors are Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley and senior Judiciary Committee member Dianne Feinstein. The pair have teamed up before to push through hardline anti-drug legislation, which will perhaps give them credit with conservatives to promote this reform.
