I hope that is true for your sake, but that has been a topic for a long time, and it never seems to gain any legs. Truth in Sentencing Laws always seem to take precedent, and the prosecutors are always very loud in objecting to re establishing good time. The fact that it has been introduced to the legislature is good news. And if it happens hopefully it is retroactive!

Good time only makes sense. It will give incentive to prisoners to behave, and lead to lower expenses for the state in regards to prisons. I mean 2 BILLION DOLLARS a year for the prison system is ridiculous!
