Sensenbrenner Points To Goodlatte As Criminal Justice Reform Obstacle
Republican Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner pointed out a big obstacle for the brewing criminal justice reform effort at a public briefing Thursday.
In response to a question from The Daily Caller News Foundation, Sensenbrenner said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte was not on board with the SAFE Justice Act, a comprehensive reform bill that has been backed by advocates on both sides of the aisle.
“I’ll be really honest to say that Chairman Goodlatte is not on board at this point in time which is one of the reasons that I want to get a good number of cosponsors,” said Sensenbrenner, who serves on the committee under Goodlatte. “Because that certainly does not escape that the legislation has a very, very wide and broad support.”
