S.C. Prison System
AIR DATE: February 05, 2009
The Pew Center on the States recently conducted a study where more than one in 100 Americans are incarcerated, which has tremendous impact on any state budget, especially South Carolina, whose Department of Corrections has been running a budget deficit for several years. We look at these issues facing the Dept. of Corrections, different proposals that would affect the budget burden, and how it ultimately affects our citizens.
