According to NBC Philadelphia, the proposed bill would prevent the courts from sentencing a person to consecutive probation sentences; prevent the courts from extending probation or parole due to nonpayment of fines and fees; and introduce incentives that reward good behavior.

The bill would also ensure that people on probation won’t be re-incarcerated for testing positive for marijuana, associating with a former criminal, or traveling outside their jurisdiction.

“This proposed bill is the first step in changing the criminal justice system and it’s only right that we start in my home state,” said Meek, who was joined outside the Municipal Services Building by political commentator/activist Van Jones, 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin and others.

“I’ve lost too much time away from my son, my family, my friends and fans in Philly because of outdated probation laws, so I want to make sure people don’t have go through what I did.”

The legislation has bipartisan support, with Democratic Representative Jordan Harris and Republican Representative Sheryl Delozier backing the bill. According to a local lawmaker, they hope to have the legislation written and filed within the next few weeks.

Earlier this year, Meek teamed up with JAY-Z, Van Jones, Michael Rubin and others to launch the prison reform initiative, REFORM Alliance. He’s also bringing awareness to his own legal troubles in an upcoming Amazon documentary series called Free Meek.
