Justice Solutions of America, Inc. is pleased to announce that now pending in the U.S. Congress are 2 bills supported by both Democrats and Republicans that will result in sentencing reform. Recently introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives, H.R. 920 and in the U.S. Senate S. 502, is the Smarter Sentencing Act of 2015.
The Smarter Sentencing Act if passed by both houses of Congress and signed by the President will make the following changes:
- Reduce the penalties for certain drug crimes
- Retroactively reduce some prison sentences for drug crimes
- Directs a close look by all Federal Agencies with regulations when broken can lead to prison time and requires them to report the penalties
The next step for the proposed legislation is a hearing before the Senate and House Judiciary Committees. No date has been set for the hearings but the time for meaningful is now.
