Cosponsor Bipartisan Victims’ Right Reform Act of 2019 – Rectify Injustices Experienced by Jeffrey Epstein’s Victims

Please join us in supporting the bipartisan Courtney Wild Does Crime Victims’ Rights Reform Act of 2019, which will update the Crime Victims’ Rights Act (CVRA) to improve the justice system’s interactions with victims before, during, and after criminal
proceedings. Being a victim of crime is already traumatizing, and too often the criminal justice system, with its confusing procedures and adversarial nature, ends up victimizing them all over again. This comprehensive legislation will restore some of the
dignity and autonomy victims lost when they were impacted by crime.

Allow USPS to ship beer, wine & spirits, like private carriers already do – Cosponsor HR 2517!

Under current federal law, the U.S. Postal Service cannot ship beer, wine, or distilled spirits. In contrast, UPS and FedEx are allowed to ship alcohol, putting USPS at a competitive disadvantage and limiting shipping options for manufacturers and customers

door to this new source of revenue.
