Jessica Warren, representing the Department of Corrections, testified in support of the bill.
Director Williams addressed questions raised during earlier discussion. Discussion ensued regarding how the Department of Corrections handles money earned by offenders in employment programs, and certain language in the bill that bears upon this. Director Williams responded to further questions regarding the deficit status of Colorado Correctional Industries' (CCI) balance sheet, and examples of CCI program failures in terms of revenue. Ms. Warren provided input on the latter issue. Discussion turned to successful CCI programs, and security associated with offenders who are working in the community.
