113th CONGRESS

1st Session

H. R. 446

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

February 1, 2013

Mr. Deutch introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

A BILL

To establish the National Criminal Justice Commission.

1. 

Short title

This Act may be cited as the  National Criminal Justice Commission Act of 2013 .

2. 

Findings

Congress finds that—

(1) 

it is in the interest of the Nation to establish a commission to undertake a comprehensive review of the criminal justice system;

(2) 

there has not been a comprehensive study since the President’s Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice was established in 1965;

(3) 

that commission, in a span of 18 months, produced a comprehensive report entitled The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society, which contained 200 specific recommendations on all aspects of the criminal justice system involving Federal, State, tribal, and local governments, civic organizations, religious institutions, business groups, and individual citizens; and

(4) 

developments over the intervening 45 years require once again that Federal, State, tribal, and local governments, civic organizations, religious institutions, business groups, and individual citizens come together to review evidence and consider how to improve the criminal justice system.
