116th Congress
Many thanks to the tens of thousands of American's who supported H.R. 1475 in the 111th Congress and The BARBER AMENDMENT Petition in the 112th, 113th, 114th and 115th Congress.  Although the bill did not pass and BARBER not introduced, it is not the last hurrah for federal good time legislation. Half the battle has been won with the passing of the First Step Act (FSA), which fixed the way good time credits are calculated on the "sentence imposed" rather then "term of imprisonment." FSA also increased time credits to 54 days a year from 47, albeit not the 128 days sought by BARBER Amendment.

Please continue to contact your Congresspersons urging them to sponsor FedCURE's proposals in 116th Congress. The Sentencing Reform Act and The Barber Amendment.   Please continue to contact your Congresspersons urging them to sponsor FedCURE's proposals in 116th Congress.

BARBER AMENDMENT:  A bill to amend Title 18 U.S.C. Section 3624(b)(1) as follows:  by striking the number "54" in the first sentence as it appears and inserting in lieu thereof the number "128"; and in the same sentence, by striking "prisoner's term of imprisonment"  and inserting in lieu thereof  "sentence imposed" . This Amendment is retroactive. [END].
 
Note:   The Barber Amendment  has not been introduced.  FedCURE is seeking bipartisan support for the bill in the 116th Congress.

U.S. Attorney General remarks to reinstate fedeal parole: "New consideration should be given to the reinstatement of parole for federal offenders to help restore fairness in the criminal justice system and relieve overcrowding in the swelling federal prison system.  The federal system, which holds about 220,000 inmates, is at least 40% over capacity, according to the Justice Department. Parole, which was abolished for federal offenders convicted after 1987 as part of tough anti-crime measures of the time, 'ought to be discussed.'"  Attorney General, Eric Holder.


SECOND LOOK:  Introducing The Sentencing Reform Act ~ (best practices, evidence based legislation to establish a retroactive, hybrid system of parole and good time allowances; retroactive 1-1 ratio for crack cocaine penalties and retroactive repeal of mandatory minimum sentences, for most federal offenders; and provide reentry opportunities for people coming home from prison).
