Default Bill 759: Good Time Credits

Here is another good Bill.

BILL 759. The legislation, wants to get it done before the summer break....On June 5th.

Here is a link at the bottom of this message
Restore opportunity to earn goodtime credits for prisoners in Security Housing Units....

Ask your senator to vote YES on Senate Bill 759

Under existing law, prisoners in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) system are allowed to earn “goodtime” credits for good behavior – reductions in their sentences that total six months for every six months of continuous confinement. The law also provides for up to six weeks of additional credit earning in a 12-month period for completing rehabilitative programs. However, since 2010, prisoners who are housed in CDCR’s Security Housing Units (SHU’s) have not been eligible to receive these “goodtime” credits regardless of their behavior or participation in rehabilitation.

Goodtime credits are universally recognized by corrections experts as a tool for promoting good behavior, as well as safety for prison staff and prisoners alike. SB 759, sponsored by FCLCA and the American Friends Service Committee, will restore the opportunity to earn sentence reductions for prisoners housed in the SHU. Send your senator a message of support for SB 759 today - the vote is this week!

It's "held at desk"...which mean it hasn't been assigned to a committee yet.

You can track the BILL here. I hope this helps.

I didn't think all prisoners were eligible (except SHU). Please advise.
