House Judiciary subcommittee to hold oversight hearing on "Federal Bureau of Prisons and Implementation of the First Step Act"

As detailed at this link, the US House of Representative's Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security (of the Committee on the Judiciary) has scheduled for the afternoon of Thursday October 17 an "Oversight Hearing on the Federal Bureau of Prisons and Implementation of the First Step Act."  The witness list is available at this link.

I am cautiously hopeful that this hearing will result in some significant new data and other information about FIRST STEP Act implementation effort, although this Bureau of Prisons webpage has been pretty good with some basic numbers.
