Pledge to

Write local officials asking for their support on H.R. 1695, Justice Safety Valve Act of 2013.

How this will help

If passed, the Justice Safety Valve Act would let judges sentence federal offenders below the mandatory minimum sentence whenever that minimum term does not fulfill the goals of punishment and other facts warrant it. The bill would apply to all mandatory minimum sentences in the federal code.
