Another bill to stock the prisons

by

5 comments
The Senate today voted 20-9 to pass Sen. Bryan King's bill that says a fourth commitment to the Arkansas Department of Correction means the person sentenced must serve at least 80 percent of the sentence before parole eligibility.

The nays were eight Democrats and Republican Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson, early favorite for Senate MVP. Hutchinson said the bill could cost $20 million the state didn't have.
