Advocates Applaud Gov. Whitmer for Signing Parole Reform Laws for Medically Frail Prisoners

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed new legislation to overhaul the state’s medical parole process. The laws, HB 4129-4132, were passed overwhelmingly by the Michigan House and Senate and allow the state to parole seriously ill and “medically frail” prisoners. It would permit them to obtain care at medical facilities and nursing homes instead of prisons, saving the state millions in taxpayer dollars.
