Reduce the Parole Eligibilities Requirements for Texas Prisons

To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The Texas State House, The Texas State Senate, Governor Greg Abbott, and The United States House of Representatives

Petition Statement

I request that legislation be passed which would reduce the parole eligibility requirements of all offenders currently servicing under the 1/2 (50%) law from that of 50% minimum flat time before parole eligibility to that of serving 1/4 (25%) before parole eligibility.

The legislation should be applied RETRO-ACTIVELY.
There are currently 3,401 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The state on a whole suffers when it insists on holding people down specifically, tax payers, commerce and families are the ones adversely effected by housing offenders for excessive number of years.
