Citizens United to Change and Repeal 924(c) "Stacking Statute"

Messages Sent So Far
Congressman Bobby Scott has submitted Criminal Justice Reform Bill H.R. 1254, ?The Recidivism Clarification Act of 2015?. This bill would save taxpayers roughly $6 Billion dollars by reducing the time in prison for approximately 3,000 inmates who were sentenced to excessive time. Supporting this bill will restore lives, families and give those inmates a chance to be contributing productive citizens.

This bill would address the excessive, severe, and irrational mandatory consecutive penalties that are added onto exiting mandatory minimums, a practice commonly known as ?stacking?. The current ?stacking statute? has led to grossly disproportionate, irrational, and excessive sentences that often do not fit the crime charged and way above the recommended sentencing guidelines which were substantially less. This bill further clarifies that sentences can only be ?stacked? when the defendant is a ?true recidivist? ? meaning the defendant had a prior qualifying predicated conviction that had already been final.

We, Citizens United to Change and Repeal 924(c) ?Stacking Statute? strongly believe these relatively few inmates deserve to be re-evaluated and permitted to petition for relief for excessive sentences. The families of these men and women are hopeful that you, Congress, are truly sincere about wanting criminal justice reform that would facilitate ?Liberty and Justice for All?. Please recommend Bill H.R. 1254 be brought to the floor for a vote?..then APPROVE THIS BILL!

Let?s Get It Done?.
