A new probation reform bill is moving forward in the state legislature. Supporters say it would change Pennsylvania’s lengthy probation sentences that they say have continued to loop people in without an end in sight. In June, the state Senate approved a bipartisan bill on the issue and the full state House is expected to approve the legislation when it reconvenes in September. Pennsylvania state figures show that about 100-thousand-people are on probation or parole. The state has the fourth-highest population under community supervision in the country.
