Illinois House approves early prison release plan
SPRINGFIELD – Illinois lawmakers are telling Gov. Pat Quinn to reduce prison crowding with a new early release program.
The House voted 68-50 on Thursday to reinstate sentence credits for prisoners who stay out of trouble behind bars or participate in self-improvement programs.
Non-violent inmates could qualify for as much as six months' time off their sentences.
