Senate Bill 2621 would allow for non-violent offenders to receive sentence credits for good behavior. Sentence credits encourage inmate participation in programming, which studies show to be the most effective way to reduce recidivism. The Bill’s implementation will be open and transparent through an annual reporting requirement and brings Illinois in line with a standard practice in prison systems throughout the country.
