Life after prison: Local judge says funding makes it tough to keep people from coming back

(Continued)

> SOUTHERN INDIANA —

State Sen. Ron Grooms, R-Jeffersonville, said with more state prisoners being shifted to local jails, counties will have to absorb more costs in the beginning until existing legislation can be reviewed and perhaps improved upon.

“The prison population is going to change. Some counties will be impacted more than others,” Grooms said. “It’s an ongoing issue and I think it’s something that we’ll continue to discuss. And I’m watching it. It’s got my attention.”
