Default New bill in Jan. 2018?

I have heard that there is a bill that should be past in Jan. 2018 that will give good time to all industry workers. Does anyone know if this includes someone with a class X felony? Also does it include all workers or just industry workers?

What do you mean by industry workers? And are you referring to SB 2872?

Yes, Bill SB2872.
Industry worker or ICI (Illinois correction industries) means for example, Illinois River has a bakery, and another prison makes soap, and another prison makes clothing. They make these for the other prisons. These jobs offer good time contracts to non class x felons. It is my understanding that on Jan. 1,2018 it will change to allow class x to earn good time. Is it only for industry or is it for any job in the facility that will earn good time. It says in the bill "service to the institution to be awarded to earn good time....." Does that include workers such as warehouse, kitchen, laundry, maintenance, etc.? It seems that inmates are getting all kinds of different answers from counselors and staff etc. Nobody seems to know what's going on.

I just read this morning in a local email news thing I get about all the Illinois laws that changed as they related to criminals. Here it is: https://patch.com/illinois/deerfield...rrections-cops

Also, something that people might like is that they are now having video conferencing for people who can't visit. Something like that. I don't think what you're referring to is listed, but maybe it will help you find it.
