Law RE: 50% of time to be served

I know rumors fly through the DOC rampantly but today my loved one called and asked me to see if I can find out if it's true that IDOC is lowering the minimum of 50% of time to serve to 35% due to overcrowding. Has anyone heard anything about this or know where I can find out?

It's a rumor and one that goes around all the time, year after year, there is no legislation that will change that at this time.
