Default Introduction of Justice Safety Valve Act 2017

FAMM Welcomes Introduction of Justice Safety Valve Act

WASHINGTON – Families Against Mandatory Minimums (FAMM) applauds U.S. Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY), Patrick Leahy (D-VT), and Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Robert Scott (D-VA) for reintroducing the Justice Safety Valve Act, a bill that would effectively repeal federal mandatory minimum sentencing laws. The bill, if enacted, would allow a court to impose a prison term that is shorter than the mandatory minimum after considering sentencing criteria set by Congress. As in most cases, courts would base their sentences on the federal sentencing guidelines.
