OSPC Urges Passage of The National Criminal Justice Commission Act of 2011
The National Criminal Justice Commission Act would establish a blue-ribbon commission to take a comprehensive look at the criminal justice system in the U.S. and recommend reforms.
December 1, 2011
OSPC and other organizations support the passage of The National Criminal Justice Commission Act of 2011 (NCJCA), S. 306, which was introduced by Senator Jim Webb with bipartisan support. The bill would establish an independent commission to undertake an examination of America’s criminal justice system and to make evidence-based recommendations for fiscally responsible and effective reforms. This comprehensive look at the criminal justice system would be the first of its kind since the 1967 Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice. OSPC supported Senator Webb’s amendment to include the NCJCA in the FY12 “minibus” appropriations bill covering Commerce, Justice and Science.
