Default Bipartisan anti-recidivism bill introduced

The bill would require the DOJ to draft a “post-sentencing risk- and needs-assessment system in federal prisons,” the announcement states, meaning that when an individual is sentenced and enters federal prison, they’ll be entered into a program that gauges how likely they are to commit a crime once released and creates training programs to prevent it.
Prisoners would be given the chance to earn credited time on their sentence if they complete training on a monthly basis. It also requires the DOJ to collect statistical and demographic data about federal prisoners and report it to Congress.
