GOOD NEWS FROM THE LEGISLATURE THIS WEEK!

Late Tuesday afternoon, in the annual budget hearings before the Joint Budget Committees of the General Assembly, Department of Corrections Commissioner, Tim Ward, was asked about the cost and availability of feminine hygiene products for women inmates by Representative Carolyn Hugley (D), of Columbus. 

Dept. Commissioner Ward replied, “I do not know the cost but one change we did make about a month ago…normally we had a limit. We made a change and there is no limit on items of personal hygiene products for females and we made them more accessible in a common area bathroom. We started that about month ago.”

We applaud the Georgia Department of Corrections for this decision and encourage free and unlimited access for all those detained in correctional facilities in our state.
