Petition to Immediately Establish an Emergency Work Release Program

Petition to Immediately Establish an Emergency Work Release Program TO: 1. Governor Jeb Bush Executive Office of the Governor 400 S. Monroe Street The Capitol Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0001 It is my suggestion based on 2004 Florida Statute 944.0231 Reduction of capacity, s. 944.023 Comprehensive correctional master plan, and s. 252.36 Emergency management powers of the Governor And that since 1. Florida has been hit with 2 highly destructive hurricanes in the last 3 weeks and that 2. After Hurricane Andrew many unscrupulous, out-of-state contractors and/or workers flooded the area to perform overpriced, under code work and that 3. Florida has an untapped work force in it


I am an individual concerned with prison overcrowding and the lack of training for soon-to-be released inmates.

    Comments: If an inmate has already served 85% of his time, and as long as it is not a sex crime, I think work release would be an answer not just for Florida state, but for all the states; especially the ones that are suffering as a result of the recession.

    Comments: This is beyond beneficial to everyone involved. They should do this for inmates in other states especially New York. Also NYC!!
