Booker introduced criminal justice reform bill "Next Step Act" furthering "First Step Act"

Event Date

Booker's bill, known as the Next Step Act, includes a collection of bold reforms that jump the incremental progresses of 2018's landmark First Step Act. "It's been 75 days since the First Step Act was signed into law, and already, it's changing lives," the New Jersey Democrat said in a statement. "But the First Step Act is just as its name suggests - it is one step on the long road toward fixing our broken criminal justice system."
