Default Support the Second Chance Act!!

Hi. I'm visiting ya'll in the Alabama forum (see - I'm working on my "lingo") to ask for your help. The Second Chance Act has passed the House in Congress and is now supposed to be voted on in the U.S. Senate (Senate Bill 1060.) The Second Chance Act will provide grants to states to improve their re-entry programs for released inmates. It will also provide transitional programs for federal prisoners as well.

HOWEVER,
Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama has put a hold on the bill. Another forum member spoke to Senator Biden's office said they were trying to work to get the hold removed.

Since Senators will only listen to voters from their home districts, I'm asking Alabama PTO members to please call or email Senator Sessions and politely ask that he support the Second Chance Act and allow it a vote in the U.S. Senate.

Sen. Sessions' number in Washington, DC : 202-224-4124

He has offices throughout Alabama. You can also email him on his Senate website. http://sessions.senate.gov/email/contact.cfm

Thanks!! Zelda (Oregon)
