Allow judges to make individualized determinations about the proper punishment for defendants

I have worked across the aisle to reform the system with various pieces of legislation including:

Justice Safety Valve Act: Judges can depart from mandatory minimum sentencing laws if they find that it is in the best interests of justice to do so. This would increase judicial discretion and allow judges to make individualized determinations about the proper punishment for defendants.
