Warner & Kaine Statement on DC Criminal Code Vote

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine released the following statement ahead of the Senate vote on a resolution of disapproval regarding changes to DC’s criminal code:

“Both the city council chairman­—who has withdrawn the legislation—and the mayor have suggested that these changes to the DC criminal code are not ready for prime time. We will vote for the resolution of disapproval and urge the mayor and council to work together to create a safer city for all, including the many Virginians who commute to DC for work every day.”
