(Worthy News) - The House passed a bipartisan bill Tuesday that would help give prison inmates a second chance at life.

The FIRST STEP Act, co-sponsored by Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA, and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY, will provide educational training to inmates so they can successfully reenter society once released, and reduce recidivism.

The bill would also help inmates earn their GED, and receive treatment for substance abuse and mental health problems. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
