On April 26, 2013 the Clinton School of Public Service in coordination with Lewis-Burnett Employment Finders hosted a community conversation to present the findings of the practicum team. For the white paper, please click here!
Senator Tom Cotton was quoted in the January 28 edition of the Arkansas Times, as saying “It would be very dangerous and unwise to proceed with the Senate Judiciary bill, which would lead to the release of thousands of violent felons.”
In reality, all that the bill entitled “the Sentencing and Reform Act” would do is allow judges to review sentences on a case-by-case basis.
Senator Cotton constantly expresses that his Arkansas constituents support his views and fear reform. Silence is considered consent.
If you advocate for criminal justice reform, please contact Senator Cotton and, as Arkansans, share your views with his office.
