Cam Ward’s Prison and Criminal Justice Reform bill to Committee tomorrow

According to a local reporter, Brian Lyman, Alabama’s prison reform package is set for State Senate committee vote at 10 a.m. tomorrow.

The legislation aims reduce the state’s chronic prison overcrowding by reducing recidivism and making parole and probation more efficient. Alabama’s prisons in November held just under 25,000 inmates in a system designed to hold just over 13,000, a capacity of about 186 percent.
