"Heritage Foundation apparently endorsing Smarter Sentencing Act; where do other conservative groups and media stand?"
Doug Berman at Sentencing Law and Policy has this post. In part:
I am hopeful, based in part on the calls for reform represented by the votes and voices of Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul, that a number of other groups and media with a mission "to formulate and promote conservative public policies" will also be vocal supporters of the Smarter Sentencing Act. If other prominent conservative groups echo the sentiments expressed above, my optimism about serious sentencing reforms being passed through this Congress may start to grow considerably.
