LBB brief: 'Adult parole in Texas'

The Legislative Budget Board today published a two-page issue brief titled "Adult Parole in Texas" (pdf) - a pretty general overview that is perhaps most useful to those already familiar with the system for the list of budget line items affecting parole in the current biennium at the end of page two.

If the Parole Release Processing was dragged into the 21st century, and a slight amendment made to the parole review and approval process, Texas could save a lot of money there. Currently, inmate still have to wait for a printed paper certificate to be released before they get a date that they will be paroled on.

Being able to plan a successful parole strategy relies heavily on knowing the date that parole will start. That whole process is back to front.
