Governor Fallin Signs First Bill Into Law (Mar 18, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY - Republican Governor Mary Fallin today signed a measure into law that’s intended to prevent additional furlough days at the Department of Corrections.

It allows the use of 5.25 million dollars from the Prison Industries Fund to keep the number of monthly furlough days at one, instead of a potential four days a month.

The Prison Industries Fund is usually used for an inmate manufacturing and agricultural program. Critics say reducing the program’s funding will result in more idleness among inmates and keep them from learning trade skills.

This is the first piece of legislation Governor Fallin has signed into law.
