don't get my hopes up now, my husband is in federal too. Seems like they're the worst about letting out.

I hope this is true! But I haven't heard. The last thing I heard was that they were supposed to bring back the 65% law, but the bill died. If you hear, let me know.

Hello everyone, Please forgive me for intruding, I am new to this and was reading the topic and I too pray that this is true. My dad is in federal as well and I would really appreciate any information on the 65% good time. Thank you

I too wish this was true but haven't heard anything about it at all. Try posting this on the Federal thread here and maybe you'll get some answers.

This has been a rumor since before I went to federal prison and most likely isn't going to happen any time soon. The only person that was proposing legislation (bill) to change this passed away before it got very far and it has since been dropped, unless something new has come up.

*Moving thread to federal forum*

I was just wondering, but lets say hypothetically this bill was passed and the 65% rule is imposed. Are those already in the system also exposed to the new rule? Or does it only apply to those convicted after the bill is passed. Thank you
