12 J. Legis. 54 (1985)
This response critiques two bills regarding federal sentencing reform recently debated in Congress, the Sentencing Act of 1983 and the Sentencing Improvement Act. The Author explains the features of the two bills and its benefits but ultimately argues that despite its ability to provide needed reform, it will not correct the archaic, inhumane corrections system that would still remain. He proposes that, in addition to sentencing reform, the corrections system needs to be reformed and calls for newly funded programs to help rehabilitate criminals.
