Reps. Doug Collins (R-GA) and Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) are hopeful that their bipartisan prison reform bill, which would send 4,000 prisoners home, provide hygiene products to all incarcerated women, and has won the support of the "law and order" President, will pass the House tomorrow afternoon.

Where it stands: Jeffries told reporters on Monday afternoon that support for the bill is "trending in our direction from all corners of the House Democratic Caucus" and that significant support for the bill from the Congressional Black Caucus has emerged in the past few days.
