Will this affect current inmates?

That's why I posted to see if anyone really understands it!
My son is in on four sentences and one is an x, so don't know how things will be figured. He said guess he will find out in Jan. But if this is in effect come January shouldn't they be working on the "math" now? He said maybe the budget not being passed will affect it but I don't see how since it is a law. Doesn't stop them for issuing tickets for the new laws that went effective Jan 2017! Hoping for the best!!!

Not sure but what i gathered some inmates may not be effected if their crimes were committed after certain dates (too many to post) but I may be wrong

They talk in circles! There are so many "if" "ands" & "buts" that you don't know who it will apply to. What I do know is it is eliminating those charged with aggravated DUI (as my LO) which I feel makes no sense at all. They are the ones that could truly benefit from rehabilitation classes - and why no allow them the programming credit like all other inmates?
Supplement Sentence Credit of 180 days, even if granted, would reduce the percentage of time served only modestly. What is 180 days when youíre serving an eight, ten or fourteen year sentence? Six months off gives very little effect to their sentence overall, but to these offenders, being released three to six months earlier gives them hope and incentive to change. If anyone is in the same situation as me, I encourage you to write your local senators & representatives as I have and fight for an amendment to include them in sentencing credit.
