Export them to Mexico. Tell El President we are having a “swap”.
How about they start with removing all the prisoner tvs in the system, and cancelling cable services? Probably get a significant savings there. And when the prisoners eventually riot, fire a couple bean bags into the crowd, and then advise that that’s it for warning shots. Live ammo is cheaper than less than lethal ammunition, and they might want to consider if this is worth dying over.
And when the courts come in and order the prisons to provide cable services, laugh at them and walk away.

Govt is quite immune from supply/demand calculations.
I read in the WSJ that there are half as many home fires and twice as many firefighters (national statistics) as 30 years ago.

As far as I know, we're no longer importing inmates for the sole purpose of keeping guards employed.
If anyone wants to be added to the Michigan Cap Con ping list, let me know.

(REMEMBER THE RIVER RAISIN!)
“the budget has increased mostly because of increased employee costs.”
Is this supposed to be a surprise to anyone? I’d guess that their contract is tied to minimum wage and when min wage was increased by Pelosi’s congress, then the salary was increased for gov’t employees. In addition, when a salary rate increases, then their costs for fringe benefits also increase.
Given those scenarios, I’d guess again that the fully fringed labor cost for gov’t employees increased 25-30% from 2006 to 2013. No one should be surprised that this budget request is up....
I’m not against the proposed actions in the article, but I am sick of the “suprise” that we constantly seem to see.
