More than 20 organizations signed a letter supporting the 2019 bills. The organizations spanned the ideological spectrum, with the American Conservative Union, the R Street Institute, Americans for Tax Reform, and FreedomWorks joining the NAACP, the Drug Policy Alliance, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. The letter detailed the bar’s disparate racial impact and the barriers that it poses to rehabilitation. Unfortunately, Congress took no action on the 2019 bills.
