I heard from a friend about LA governor Jindal proposing more good time stuff for nonviolent offenders to get out much earlier if they do an intensive program. Does anybody know more about this?

According to the news I've been reading, he's about letting non-violent drug offenders have early release. I'd have to go back and see if I could find the story, but that's about the gist of it.

I read an article saying that first time non violent and non sex related offenders sentenced after Aug. 2011 could only have to serve 25% of their time instead of 1/3 of their time... Is this true?
