"Valerian and Porcian Laws", in Wikipedia.

Lex Porcia I (Lex de Porcia capita civium): Proposed by the tribune of the plebs P. Porcius Laeca in 199 BC broadening the rights of the Valerian law. It extended the right to provocatio to a further 1000 steps outside of Rome, to Roman citizens in the provinces, and to Roman soldiers. Up to this time, it is probable that provincial authorities had unmitigated coercitio.
