Prison population poses problems

-A A +A
By The Staff

One of the most challenging problems facing state government these days is our sky-rocketing prison population.

This decade alone, the number of inmates has risen nearly 50 percent, while costs have gone up by more than half.  In the last fiscal year, we spent $450 million to house more than 21,000 prisoners, a population roughly the same size as our 17th largest city.

In January, the legislature’s Program Review and Investigations Committee began taking a closer look at the reasons behind this surge.
