Released:

February 19, 2012


"An Act relating to the employment of prisoners; and providing for an effective date. "


"SB 310 is a vital piece of legislation if we are to continue inmate work and vocational training programs in our correctional facilities."
- Sen. Wilken

 

The legislation that created the Alaska Correctional Industries program and commission was repealed on July 1, 2005. The primary purpose of SB 310 is to provide the necessary statutory authority so the Department of Corrections can continue providing inmate work and training programs without interruption.

SB 310 is needed to provide for employment of prison inmates under AS 33.30. This employment program will be funded from Receipt Support Service funds. The bill provides the necessary statutory authority to participate in critical federal Prison Industry Enhancement (PIE) programs. It also grants the authority to actively participate and partner with private enterprise. These partnerships will provide realistic work experience and vocational training for prisoners under conditions similar to those that prevail in the private sector. SB 310 will allow the department to make a deduction from the offenders' wages to apply to the cost of confinement. These receipts will support the prison employment program.

In addition, the prison employment program will allow inmates to work toward financial responsibility by taking deductions from wages to pay for child support, victim restitution, criminal fines, civil judgments, fees for utilities, as well as other obligations.

SB 310 is a vital piece of legislation if we are to continue inmate work and vocational training programs in our correctional facilities.
