Federal Prison Work Incentive Act

Federal Prison Work Incentive Act of 2009

The Federal Prison Work Incentive Act of 2009 is designed to restore the former system of good time allowances toward service of Federal prison terms.  Congressman Davis introduced the bill on March 12, 2009.  On April 27, 2009 the bill was referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security of the Committee on the Judiciary.


The Federal Prison Work Incentive Act of 2009 amends the federal criminal code to allow reductions in the prison term of a federal prisoner whose record of conduct shows that such prisoner has substantially observed all prison regulations and has not been subjected to punishment.  It also allows the Director of the Bureau of Prisons to grant a reduction in a prisoner's term for actual employment in an industry or camp or for exceptionally meritorious service or for performing duties of outstanding importance in connection with institutional operations.
