GENESEE COUNTY, Mich. — A new Senate bill has been introduced to bring a good time credit system back to the Michigan Department of Corrections.

If passed, the legislation would create an incentive for incarcerated individuals to earn time off their sentence, in the form of 30 days of credit for thirty days of good behavior.

There’s a rally happening Saturday with the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office I.G.N.I.T.E. Program and local community leaders to spread the word about the good time credit system.

The group is a part of the Michigan Justice Advocacy, which focuses on criminal justice reform.
