Default Prison reform bills clear House logjam

Prison reform bills clear House logjam
The Alabama House on Tuesday passed eight bills in Gov. Bob Riley's prison reform package, despite criticism from some black members that the legislation would actually increase prison overcrowding and unfairly targets the poor.

"Not a single one of these bills address alternative sentencing, prison overcrowding and rehabilitation," Rep. James Buskey, D-Mobile, said. "We haven't even scratched the surface."
