Young: New Criminal Justice Law Will Enhance Prison Security, Reduce Crime, Transform Lives

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today applauded the President’s signature of First Step Act into law. Senator Young voted earlier this week to pass the bipartisan criminal justice reform legislation, which he cosponsored.

“This much-needed law will reduce federal recidivism and crime, prepare inmates for successful return to society, enhance prison security and officer safety, and reform federal criminal sentencing,” said Senator Young. “These reforms will bring meaningful change to our communities.”  

Earlier this month Senator Young announced he would cosponsor the First Step Act and released a list of Indiana groups who support the law. View the list here.
