Wanna Save? Invest!

That's the message of FAMM President Julie Stewart, who, in this Huffington Post piece, urges Congress to create a national criminal justice commission that will more than pay for itself in the future -- by providing cost-saving, more effective sentencing reform suggestions for both the states and the federal government.

Sounds a lot like "paying it forward," doesn't it?  The bill that would create the commission is S. 714, the National Criminal Justice Commission Act of 2009, and Congress has only a few days left this year to pass it!
