113th 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 Congress.  Although the bill did not pass and BARBER not introduced, it is not the last hurrah for federal good time legislation.

Please continue to contact your Congresspersons urging them to sponsor FedCURE's proposals in 113th Congress. The Sentencing Reform Act and The Barber Amendment.   Please continue to contact your Congresspersons urging them to sponsor FedCURE's proposals in 113th 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 113th 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.

~ Reduction In Sentence (RIS) Legislation ~

H. R. 2371 ~  `Prisoner Incentive Act of 2013.

Latest Title: Prisoner Incentive Act of 2013
Sponsor: Rep Scott, Robert C. "Bobby" [VA-3] (introduced 6/13/2013) Cosponsors (1)
Latest Major Action: 6/13/2013 Referred to House committee. Status: Referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.

The `Prisoner Incentive Act of 2013' ~ offered by Rep. Scott, amends the good time statutes to: sentence imposed vs term of imprisonment and is retroactive. It is the BARBER AMENDMENT, but 54 days instead of 128 days a year in good time allowances. While FedCURE supports H.R. 2371, because it makes the BARBER fix, we seek to amend H.R.2371 by increasing the days from 54 to 128. In the end, we believe that measures like BARBER and or H.R. 2371 are Congresses' only way out.

 

Latest Title: Federal Prison Bureau Nonviolent Offender Relief Act of 2013
Sponsor: Rep Jackson Lee, Sheila [TX-18] (introduced 1/3/2013) Cosponsors (None)
Latest Major Action: 1/3/2013 Referred to House subcommittee. Status: Referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.
