In addition to eliminating jail time for technical parole violations, the “Less is More” bill would also improve procedures, speed up hearings and provide credit for time earned for those on community supervision. As a victim of the prison system, Meek Mill has in recent years advocated for reforms that would provide a more level playing field for those incarcerated or at risk of incarceration. So it’s no surprise that the rapper supports a parole reform bill that New York state lawmakers will soon be voting on. If passed, the “Less is More” bill would eliminate jail time for a wide range of technical parole violations. According to Revolt, the bill currently has the support of more than 275 community and advocacy groups in New York, as well as several Democratic members of Congress. “I urge the New York State Legislature to pass theLess is More’ bill before I leave town next week,” the rapper wrote. Meek Mill is an artist with Warner Music. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.
