Bureau of Corrections Renaming Act of 2013

Bureau of Corrections Renaming Act of 2013 - Renames the Bureau of Prisons in the Department of Justice (DOJ) as the Bureau of Corrections.
    What is the purpose of this? There’s no programs available to actually “correct” behavior it’s just shove them in, keep them there with some lame classes until time to shuttle them out. Instead of a bill to change the name how about a bill to actually change the system. This is a waste of taxpayer time and money. Keep it how it is and do something worthwhile.
