H.R.2371 ~ `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. Whereas, another bill, the "Public Safety Enhancement Act of 2013," in draft, by Reps. Chaffetz/Scott, seeks to reinvent the wheel with what FedCURE, Public Defenders and the vast majority advocates believe is totally undoable. In the end, we believe that measures like BARBER and or H.R. 2371 are Congresses' only way out.
