Update on Texas Treatment Prison Beds

Texas is currently undergoing a large prison bed expansion. During 2007, state lawmakers authorized more than 8,500 new beds in the form of treatment prisons. We have written previously that this expansion is a mix of public, private, and not-for-profit beds.

Scott, at Grits for Breakfast, recently posted that while the money is available private vendors are not bidding for the contracts.

We have attempted to provide a list of the treatment prison beds that are currently online in the table below. Note that of the 8,500 beds which were appropriated money in 2007, only 4,102 have been filled.
