Hi Courtney's mom, I myself heard from my daughter tonight and she asked me to look the 15 % new law up. I have yet to find it, so I am curious, have you found out anything on it?

Hi courtneysmom! What did you ever find out about this? My husband has been in county for a month now and is waiting to be sent to rankin for processing and he told me the same thing about the new 15% law but I can't find anything about it anywhere.

I am having the same problem. My fiance has even seen one guys time sheet which was for 15 percent but noone else has been able to answer me. I was told it went in effect July 1st and that is all I know. Does anyone know anything or what bill this is?

Usually these drastic reductions in time to serve are rumors...I couldn't find anything previously to substantiate the drop in percentage.
