WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner released the following statement on the passage of the Second Chance Reauthorization Act:

Congressman Sensenbrenner: “We’ve seen time and again that the initiatives put forth in the Second Chance Act work. In addition to saving significant taxpayer dollars, this legislation gives imprisoned individuals the tools they need to successfully re-enter society and become contributing members of their communities. With broad bipartisan support, this targeted bill will enhance our overall efforts to bring serious and desperately needed reform to our failing criminal justice system. I’m proud to be a sponsor of the Second Chance Reauthorization Act and am pleased by its passage today."
