It is great news it passed finally. It will hopefully open the door the person prison reform so greatly needed in this state. To be able to back track good time for classes completed and earning a BA is a great step forward. It unfortunately did not apply to truth in sentencing convictions. There is a bill in the house specifically for that currently (hb2620). There are many bills currently in the house that NEED support by citizens contacting their state reps! A great site in IL to follow is incarcerationreform.com and you can see everything currently being proposed. Even bills against prison reform that also need our voices of dispute!!!
The annual JHA luncheon is on September 17 here in Chicago and there are peaceful displays of support for these bills planned to draw media attention to these proposals.

Everyone in IL should consider John Howard Association for donations. They do a tremendous job advocating for those that are incarcerated.

Slaughter Measure to Expand Prison Sentencing Credits Signed by Governor
Sep 9, 2019 | Slaughter

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Continuing his efforts to reform the criminal justice system in Illinois, state Rep. Justin Slaughter, D- Chicago, recently championed legislation that expands inmates’ eligibility for sentencing credits.

“Illinois spends far too much money annually on keeping people behind bars, and I think that it is about time we reduce the amount of money put toward incarcerating people and put it back into our communities across the state,” Slaughter said. “This legislation will help incarcerated individuals work toward a better future while decreasing prison populations and benefitting our state’s finances.”

Question Illinois HB 0094-Public Act 101-0440

Good afternoon,

I wanted to reach out to you in hopes you might be able to answer questions we have concerning Sentencing Credits
with the passed bill HB 0094/ Public Act 101-0440.

What is the legislative intent behind the passing of the statute? Do you anticipate making everyone incarcerated prior to 1998 eligible for good time in full for all programs participated in?

The main question at hand is the breakdown of the sentencing credit.

1. Will the offender that meets the criteria of incarceration prior to ‘98 be eligible for the ENTIRE 90 day award for EACH Individual vocational program he has completed?

2. Will he only receive a one time credit of 90 days for all of the vocational programs completed?

My fiancé has been incarcerated since 1/9/96 and has participated in the educational programs and participated in Illinois Industry Vocational Training Programs for the previous 17 years.

He is ongoing in the Industry and is receiving good time for every 90 days ( 45 ) days given for good time credit.

We are trying to obtain a clearer picture of exactly what this Passed Bill means for him. Will he be eligible for time he participated prior to the passing of this Bill for the whole 17 years in the industry or just receive the one time credit?

Basically, wanting to know the intent of the legislators? Will IDOC automatically notify those incarcerated that qualify after January 2020? Will the offender have to request proof of his participation in the programs by affidavit on his own behalf?

I appreciate your time and any assistance in the explanation of the passed bill.
