If you live in Nevada contact your legislators and let them know in no uncertain terms that you want NO PRIVATE PRISONS IN NEVADA!
This is not a done deal yet, so voice your opinion. See many articles on this website indicating why private prisons are a DISASTER!
A bill seeking to ban private prisons in Nevada has passed a legislative hurdle. Legislators on a state Assembly committee voted on Friday to approve legislation that requires the “core correctional services” at each prison to be performed by local or state employees.
It is sponsored by Democrat Assemblywoman Daniele Monroe-Moreno, who told lawmakers earlier this month the state has no private-run prisons at the moment. She says the state once did and experienced “negative consequences.”
Several Republican lawmakers voted against the measure.
