More News on Private Prison Labor Bill

We previously posted that state legislators introduced companion bills to drastically alter state prison labor programs. Our pal Scott at Grits for Breakfast, provides an interesting take on this legislation which will be heard in the House Corrections Committee on Thursday morning. 

If the comments on the Grits blog are any indication, tomorrow's hearing might be interesting.  The details for the public hearing are:

COMMITTEE: Corrections
TIME & DATE: 8:00 AM, Thursday, March 26,
PLACE: E2.010

And folks who can't make it to the dome, can watch the hearing online at the Texas Legislature Website.  We will be sure to update y'all after the hearing takes place.

Those private prison people in Lockhart sure don't like the bill. I thought Lockhart's mayor was going to have a heart attack when he testified in front of the Corrections Committee on March 26,2009. Its sad the mayor spends lots of time bringing low paying jobs to his community. Rep. McReynolds did not need to be attacked by him. McReynolds is a good and honest man. The mayor owes him an apology. I'm glad the Honorable Mayor James Bertram is not my mayor. I was glad to see people on both sides of the aisle tell the mayor the truth about Rep. McReynolds. Word of advise to Mayor James Bertram, don't make "knee jerk" statesments and don't go to bat for sleaze bag groups like Geo. The great citizens of Lockhart should see a video of their mayor in action: http://www.house.state.tx.us/fx/av/committee81/90326b06.ram

Seems like I can't get the video to stream on the Texas House of Representatives site - where can I find an update about what happened at the Private Prison Labor Bill at?
