I do not know how many for the federal not to take over, but the prisons were designed to hold approximately 90,000 +- inmates and we have over 173,000! They have only sent to date about 300 inmates out of state. So, they have a long way to go. But my understanding is they do not have to have the prisons all within a certain amount, they just have to have a plan in action to start reducing.
