Introduced by: 
Representative Doug Collins
Text of bill: Click here for the full text of the bill. 

If passed, H.R. 3356 would allow some federal prisoners to earn time credits that would reduce their sentences, if they lower their risk recidivism by completing recidivism-reducing programs and jobs. This bill would not reduce or eliminate any mandatory minimum sentences, or create safety valve exceptions for those sentences, increase the number of “good time credits” federal prisoners can earn for good behavior, or re-instate federal parole.

Bill Status: We do not know if or when these bills could become law. To become a law, these bills must be approved by the Judiciary Committee, passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, passed by the U.S. Senate, and signed by the President. It takes a long time to pass a bill into law, and very few bills become laws each year.
