Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on Mandatory Minimums

This morning at 10 am Eastern:

Reevaluating the Effectiveness of Federal Mandatory Minimum Sentences

Witness List

  • The Honorable Rand Paul, United States Senator, State of Kentucky
  • The Honorable Brett Tolman, Shareholder, Ray Quinney & Nebeker, Salt Lake City, UT
  • Marc Levin, Policy Director, Right on Crime Initiative at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, Austin, TX
  • The Honorable Scott Burns, Executive Director, National District Attorneys Association, Alexandria, VA

Note that Scott Burns has been added to the list. He’s likely to be a challenge to the hearing.

Of course, this is an interesting hearing as it focuses on the conservative arguments for sentencing reform. Something that’s good to see in the Senate.

This is an open thread.
