Hagerty Statement the D.C. Council’s Desperate New Ploy

March 6, 2023

WASHINGTON—United States Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) today released the following statement after the D.C. Council announced it is attempting to withdraw its dangerous and irresponsible Revised Criminal Code Act of 2022 (RCCA):

“This desperate, made-up maneuver not only has no basis in the DC Home Rule Act, but underscores the completely unserious way the DC Council has legislated. No matter how hard they try, the Council cannot avoid accountability for passing this disastrous, dangerous DC soft-on-crime bill that will make residents and visitors less safe.”
