Rep. John Culberson is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, and Science of the House Appropriations Committee. This subcommittee is responsible for allocating funds to programs within the Department of Justice, including the JJDPA. The JJDPA sets federal standards to ensure a minimum level of safety and equitable treatment for youth who come into contact with the juvenile justice system.
As the Appropriations Committee begins the process for FY 2019, it's important for Rep. Culberson to hear from his constituents about the importance of funding the JJDPA by graduation.
My name is friend, and I'm a constituent of Representative Culberson's. I support the JJDPA because it supports our young people and ensures fair and equitable treatment in the Justice System. As the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, and Science of the House Appropriations Committee, I am asking Representative Culberson to fully fund the JJDPA by graduation.
