Indiana to Review Sentencing Policy and Prison Spending

Ian Scott on Wednesday, July 14, 2010 at 6:15:06 pm

In late June, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels announced that the state would conduct a comprehensive review of sentencing guidelines and the prison system.  The goal for this effort is to reduce growth in the state's prison population. The Pew Center on the States is assisting with the effort.

Indiana Chamber CEO Kevin Brinegar wrote an editorial in support of the governor's proposal saying:

"The more thoughtful we can be about housing and rehabilitating offenders, the more dollars the state will have for education, economic development and other public safety initiatives."

Indiana is not alone among states reevaluating sentencing guidelines and spending on incarceration.  Corrections reform is one of three key proposals by the Kentucky Chamber to repair the state's "Leaky Bucket" budget.
