The PA House’s bad idea for next week

Next week, the Pennsylvania House may take up legislation to reinstate mandatory minimum sentencing laws. We at FAMM think that’s a bad idea.

Today we are releasing a new video to help educate policymakers about why individualized, evidence-based approaches to sentencing are preferable to mandatory sentencing regimes.

Enhancing Public Safety at Lower Cost: Why Pennsylvania Should…

Tomorrow, the Pennsylvania House may take up legislation to reinstate mandatory minimum sentencing laws. We at FAMM think that’s a bad idea. Today we are releasing a new video to help educate policymakers about why individualized, evidence-based approaches to sentencing are preferable to mandatory sentencing regimes. Share if you agree, especially if you are a #PA resident who knows the dangers of mandatory sentencing.

We will continue to work with state and national groups from across the ideological spectrum to get this message to lawmakers.

We expect to be very involved in the coming weeks and months and hope you will consider us a resource as you write about these issues. Our president, Kevin Ring, is available to provide any background or commentary you need.

Sincerely,

Lani Prunes
