Plans to save the state money by reducing the number of inmates at the state prison isn’t working as well as lawmakers hoped. According to a new report, to this date nearly 30,000 prisoners have been released since 2012. The program called the Justice Reinvestment Act creates incentives for offenders to comply with probation. The report shows that many are staying out of prison thanks to the program, but the housing costs for new sentencing have outdone the savings. Representative Bob Dixon co-chairs the commission; he says he’s pushing for more money to fund the programs hoping to cut costs for housings prisoners.
