Default The Reverse Mass Incarceration Act

http://time.com/4963479/crime-rates-mass-incarceration/

Quote:
It would authorize $20 billion in incentive funds over 10 years to states that cut their prison population by 7% every three years and keep crime near record lows, or even lower. This can be done either by creating a new grant — or by directing current funds — to support state activities proven to reduce crime and incarceration at once.
I have to go to an appointment now, but when I get back I'll phone my Congressperson.

(202) 224-3121 is the main number, answered by people whose job it is to know who your Congressperson is and put you through to their office.

They may ask for the bill number. That's HR 3845.
