The 2014 elections have ushered in a new Congress. With Congress under single party control and an opposing party controlling the White House, what can we expect during the next year in terms of federal innocence program funding and authorization and forensic science reform? This presentation will provide context for federal criminal justice reform and innocence efforts during the 114th Congress and current Obama Administration. Additionally, speakers will provide an update on funding for federal innocence programs and forensic science efforts, and describe potential points of entry for Network engagement in these dynamic federal policy issues.
