PA Congressional Delegation Unanimously Votes for Criminal Justice Reform Bill
First the Senate, then the House.
Earlier this week, the “First Step Act” breezed through the Senate with 87 votes in favor of what NBC News describes as a “huge” reform bill during the Senate’s final vote.
Before voting in favor of the bill’s final passage, Toomey voted no on cloture earlier this week, but said in a statement that the “productive reforms contained within the First Step Act outweigh the measure’s shortcomings.”
The U.S. House also overwhelmingly supported the “First Step Act” passing it 358-36.
All 18 Congressional Representatives from Pennsylvania voted in favor of the bill.
Earlier today, President Donald Trump signed the First Step Act into law.
