The strange "b" word bipartisan has been a thing lately with the First Step Act, proposing surprisingly progressive reforms like ending the “three strikes” policy mandating life in prison for third-time drug offenders and adds incentives for low-risk inmates..
Whenever I see the name Koch my -meter goes up, and the act's name, "First Step", (well to me, anyway) has ominous overtones of future steps that might not be as reasonable as this one. Hopefully those suspicions will eventually be proven wrong.
Then again, it'll be another thing to get the FSA past the Senate and Turtley McTurtleface, who apparently feels there's bigger priorities.
