Clip: 12/12/2018 | 9m 56s

The Senate is expected to take up criminal justice reform before year end. A proposed overhaul would lower mandatory minimum sentences for drug crimes, ban the shackling of pregnant prisoners and ensure inmates stay closer to family. Judy Woodruff talks to Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., two advocates for the bill, about its provisions and rare bipartisan support.
