Second Chance Act

Here's a page with the test of the Second Chance Act, and hearings about the act, which was designed to facilitate prisoner reentry.  According to Maryland Governor Bob Ehrlich: “This Legislation authorizes much needed assistance to state and local governments for projects that enhance a person’s ability to find a job and receive housing or substance abuse and mental health treatment.  . . . Just as important, the bill creates a federal task force from various agencies to identify ways to collaborate and remove barriers to successful re-entry.” [Jack Chin; thanks to Myrna Raeder]
