Letter to the House Judiciary on the Criminal Code Improvement Act of 2015 (November 2015)

The bill represents a very important step forward by leaders from both political parties to address a matter that has been the source of significant injustice and unfairness in the American criminal justice system. Mens rea reform was a central theme of the discussions and testimony in the multiple hearings held by the bipartisan 2013-14 House Overcriminalization Task Force. NACDL applauds the bold and significant, bipartisan leadership on this important issue.
