Introduced in the House

Introduced by Rep. Kyra Bolden (D-35)

To allow prisoners to earn time off their sentence for good behavior. This would restore an older "good time" system which was eliminated for certain violent felons by Proposal B of 1978, and subsequently eliminated for all felons by “truth in sentencing” provisions enacted in 1987.
