Senator Vows “Good Time” Fight

Omaha State Senator Ernie Chambers is promising a big fight if his colleagues and Governor Dave Heineman make any attempt at changing the state’s “good time’ law. He says lawmakers and other Nebraskans forbid the spending of money on programs that could make a difference in the life of a criminal. He says every program aimed at inmates is underfunded or denied.

Chambers says every “man, woman and child” need motivation and the “good time” law is a management tool for the corrections system. He says if it wasn’t for that law there would be on incentive to behave.  It appears he doesn’t even want to listen to what other officials have to say.
