Washington Hearing: Second Chance Reauthorization Act of 2011

Senate Judiciary
Thu, Jul 14, 2011 10:00 AM. Business meeting to consider S.1231, to reauthorize the Second Chance Act of 2007

Folks may remember that, the Second Chance Act of 2007, EXCLUDES sex offenders, HOWEVER this new bill S 1231 REMOVES that exclusion. If this bill passes -as currently written- then thousands of sex offenders all across the nation will reap the benefits of the Second Chance Act.

This MAY BE a Historic moment, but we still need to watch S 1231 to see IF IF IF IF it is changed on its trip through Congress, so we hope Congress will recognize the needs of thousands of sex offenders nationally when they are released, as they already recognize the needs of other offenders.

For now have a great day and a better tomorrow.

PS: Within the Second Chance Act there is still a sticky part dealing with Federal offenders, and we are hoping this gets resolved as well. Right now there is nothing to help this group of former offenders in S 1231.
