Meek Mill’s REFORM Alliance proposed a probation reform bill that was recently introduced into legislature.
The bill is known as the Smart Probation and Parole Act and was presented for consideration in the House Judiciary Committee. Meek Mill’s reform group noted that the bill is looking to “Incentivize good behavior and rehabilitation for people on probation and parole. Reverse damaging measures that led to Pennsylvania having the third highest percentage of its citizens on probation and parole in America.”
Meek issued a statement on the bill, saying:
“I’ve been on probation in Pennsylvania my entire adult life, for over a decade. Every aspect of my life is restricted. We need to pass HB1555 and make sure individuals in Pennsylvania never experience confining and oppressive barriers that make it nearly impossible to re-enter society, travel to a job or even provide for their families.”
