IPC Commends Passage of FIRST STEP Act


Reading time ( words)

John Mitchell, president and CEO of IPC issued the following statement on the U.S. Senate’s vote this week to enact a criminal justice reform bill called the FIRST STEP Act.

“IPC applauds the U.S. Senate for coming together in a bipartisan manner to address criminal justice reform with the passage of the FIRST STEP Act, which includes an important provision to build up the high-tech workforce while reducing recidivism. Specifically, the bill calls for partnerships with schools and industry organizations to offer vocational training and certifications to help inmates transition into the workforce. Providing more workforce development opportunities in the electronics industry is among IPC’s top priorities, and thus we look forward to continuing to work with governments and partners at all levels to implement this provision.”
