Briefing Book on Mandatory Minimum Sentences | FAMM

Briefing Book on Mandatory Minimum Sentences

FAMM has compiled an easy-to-use briefing book to help Members of Congress and their staff members write, introduce, and support mandatory minimum sentencing reforms and safety valve reforms. Learn the basics about mandatory minimum sentences, find complete lists of them (scroll to the bottom), consider model legislative language, and read what law enforcement, prison officials, experts, advocates, judges, and other agencies have said about them.

FAMM is available to work and consult with staff and lawmakers on pending and proposed legislation. Contact Josh Mitman, director of federal legislative affairs, at or 202-822-6700
