Lawmakers should review every prison rule Help to pack a House subcommittee meeting and vote on Oct. 26`

Thu, 2017-10-19 23:50 +0000

The Department of Corrections is one of two state agencies that can make up its own operating rules without approval by lawmakers. We hope that situation changes soon. A House subcommittee meets Oct. 26 to debate and vote on HB 192, a bill we wrote that would force Corrections to get all of its administrative rules approved by lawmakers. The session starts at 10 a.m. in Room 306 of the Legislative Office Building, across the street from the State House. We need people to come and testify. Or simply wear one of our YES on HB 192 stickers to show you support the bill.
