The White House on Tuesday announced President Obama has commuted the prison sentences of another 111 people.

The move brings the president's total commutations to 673, more than the past 10 presidents combined. Obama commuted the sentences of 325 people in August alone.

Most of the federal inmates whose sentences were cut short were serving time for nonviolent drug offenses. This includes 35 individuals who were sentenced to life behind bars.

White House Counsel Neil Eggleston said Obama will continue to grant commutations until he leaves office, but urged Congress to act on criminal justice reform.

"Only the passage of legislation can achieve the broader reforms needed to ensure our federal sentencing system operates more fairly and effectively in the service of public safety," Eggleston wrote in a blog post.
