Web page on Streamlined Procedures Act

In this recent post, I assembled some materials and commentary on the habeas corpus restrictions moving through Congress in the proposed Streamlined Procedures Act.   I have now discovered that the Campaign for Criminal Justice Reform has created this very helpful webpage about the legislation, which includes a number of links to the pending bills, congressional testimony and letters written by various groups opposing the legislation.  The webpage is avowedly critical of the legislation; it asserts that the legislation "would effectively kill the writ of habeas corpus by stripping federal courts of jurisdiction to consider cases in which a prisoner's constitutional rights may have been violated."
