2014 Senate Bill 909

Cap inmates in state-run prisons at 38,000

Introduced in the Senate

April 24, 2014

Introduced by Sen. John Proos (R-21)

To cap the number of prisoners in state prisons at 38,000, and require that prisoners above this number be kept in jails or other “secure facilities” (which appears to mean privatized prisons including the former Michigan youth correctional facility in Baldwin, a privately owned and managed prison).

Referred to the Committee on Appropriations
