Prisoner Incentive Act of 2013

Official Title

To amend title 18, United States Code, with respect to the good time credit toward service of sentences of imprisonment.


Prisoner Incentive Act of 2013 - Amends the federal criminal code to: (1) allow federal prisoners to earn up to 54 days of credit toward the service of a sentence for each year of the prisoner's sentence imposed by the court if the Bureau of Prisons determines the prisoner has displayed exemplary compliance with institutional disciplinary regulations; and (2) authorize the Bureau to restore credit previously denied to a prisoner, based on such prisoner maintaining good behavior. Makes this Act applicable to each prison sentence that has not been completed before the date of enactment, except any sentence imposed before November 1, 1987.
    We need to do this and another bing is that any new bills need to stop rewarding the drug dealers and drug users, violent criminals (thugs) and grant more programs and shorter sentences for those with a lower risk of recidivism such as the white collar criminals who if outside would be working and able to pay restitution but inside aren’t able to be productive.
