Senate Committee Passes Work-For-Time Credits Bill

This week, the Senate Judiciary and Civil and Criminal Jurisprudence Committee heard HB 2088. Sponsored by Rep. Derek Grier (R-Chesterfield), the bill would allow offenders on probation or parole to earn a credit that is equal to a one-day reduction in their sentence for every one day spent working a qualifying job. Witnesses who spoke in favor of the bill claimed it would help reduce recidivism, make our communities safer, and help reduce the worker shortage now experienced by many communities. The Senate committee later voted the bill “Do Pass”.
