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.
