Default Another state with healthcare issues and possible federal intervention

With poor health care ratings, state's prisons in danger of being taken over
Esteban Parra, Delaware Online News Journal, 09/30/2009

After spending more than $130 million over three years, Delaware's prison system continues to provide health care to inmates that falls short of federal requirements, according to a report issued Tuesday by an independent monitor.

While the federal agency declined to comment Tuesday, it can take the more drastic measure of suing for control of the state's prison system. When it did that in California, the penal system was taken over by the federal government, which ordered the release of prisoners because of overcrowding.
