FIRST STEP Act on Verge of Becoming Law
HARRISBURG, Pa. – Americans for Prosperity-Pennsylvania (AFP-PA) celebrated the Senate’s passage of the FIRST STEP Act, criminal justice reform legislation that will enhance public safety, provide a second chance to hundreds of thousands of people who’ve paid their debt to society, and save taxpayer dollars. The grassroots group had encouraged Senators Pat Toomey and Bob Casey to support the act with digital advertisements and phone calls.
AFP-PA State Director Beth Anne Mumford issued the following statement:
“We’re grateful that this holiday season, Senators Toomey and Casey worked together to give Pennsylvanians and all Americans one of the best presents of all: a second chance. This legislation is a crucial first step toward breaking the cycle of incarceration, bringing families together, and creating safer communities. We look forward to continue building broad coalitions throughout Pennsylvania to improve our criminal justice policies, break down barriers to opportunity, and help people improve their lives.”
