Governor Gretchen Whitmer has signed legislation amending the Michigan Corrections Code to allow the Michigan Parole Board to deny parole for violent incarcerated individuals for up to five years after a majority vote and written report.

House Bills 4562 and 4563 help protect victims of horrific, violent crimes from reliving their traumatic experiences every year at parole hearings.
