The bill, which passed on a 67-39 vote, now moves to the Senate, where it will face a tougher road to passage, so it's not become "law" yet. I went back through the article and did not see anything about being "retro"

From what I read, no it is not retro. It will only effect those convicted after the date of the law passing.

The policy change, if enacted, would only apply to prisoners who enter the state prison system after the policy goes into effect, so there would be no savings immediately. But within five years, about 3,200 prisoners would likely be released who wouldn’t have otherwise, saving the state about $75 million. Savings would increase as the policy is in place longer. The parole board would still have the discretion to deny parole if there were “compelling reasons.”

Default House Bill 4138

House Bill 4138 has passed the House of Representatives. It would require that the parole board to release prisoners with a high probability score (those who have done well) unless there is credible evidence that the inmate would be a risk to public safety on the date of their ERD.
People are being held because programming wasn't available or simply for a few tickets.

This bill is going on to the Senate. Please contact your state senator to advocate for our nonviolent loved ones to get their chance at release on time.

It will also create savings for the state for our real needs.

The legislative language seems to agree...


(12) SUBSECTIONS (7) AND (8) AS AMENDED OR ADDED BY THE
20 AMENDATORY ACT THAT ADDED THIS SUBSECTION APPLY ONLY TO PRISONERS
21 WHOSE CONTROLLING OFFENSE WAS COMMITTED ON OR AFTER THE EFFECTIVE
22 DATE OF THE AMENDATORY ACT THAT ADDED THIS SUBSECTION. SUBSECTIONS
23 (7) AND (8) DO NOT APPLY TO A PRISONER SERVING A LIFE SENTENCE,
24 REGARDLESS OF THE DATE OF HIS OR HER CONTROLLING OFFENSE.

"The one thing that this bill does is, it says to the parole board that you must give a substantive reason for denying parole to those prisoners in that highest category," said Rep. Dave Pagel, R-Berrien Springs, speaking in support of the bill.

This just give the parole board more accountability for refusing parole to an inmate that had a high score on their parole scoring.
