In many sessions of #TxLege, there are proposals put out there to allow a legislator to say "hey, I tried..." but they rarely even make it out of committee. Keep in mind also that changes to parole eligibility tend to be prospective, not retroactive. Do not hold your breath waiting for any sort of a return to old-law mandatory supervision.

The reality is that the Legislature has no real interest in reducing the amount of time to be served by an aggravated offender. Thus it becomes incumbent upon the aggravated offender to follow the rules and participate in any and all programming they can get into in an attempt to better position themselves for when they DO become eligible.
