Doug introduced the Prison Reform and Redemption Act back in July 2017. This bill later turned into the First Step Act.
Doug worked hand-in-hand with President Trump, Jared Kushner, and the Trump Administration to author legislation that President Trump later signed into law and recently promoted in a Super Bowl ad.
Doug has NOT introduced the Prison Reform and Redemption Act this Congress, contrary to some reporting. He is not promoting “more drastic jailbreak legislation” as a second step in criminal justice reform.
Doug opposes the H.R. 3795 - a radical, progressive measure proposed by liberals unhappy with the First Step Act.
Doug was the lone House Republican to grill Stacey Abrams when she came to the House Judiciary Committee in June of 2019.
