I am writing to encourage your support for the Second Chance Act, H.R. 1593. This important bill was passed by the House in December 2007, and it’s time the Senate followed suit.
The Second Chance Act would provide assistance for released felons to make a successful transition to free society. It would fight crime by reducing the rate of recidivism, the rate at which ex-offenders commit new crimes and return to prison.
As a member of the Center for Moral Clarity, I consider this an important issue of social justice. Please use your influence to assure that the Second Chance Act is brought to the Senate floor for passage. Thank you for considering my opinion.
