NEW Economy & Corrections
More creative savings in KDOC. This time a new bill passed for addicts.
Just read an recent article on the examiner.com that said as of
March 5th both the House & Senate have passed a bill allowing
shorter sentences to Kentucky addicts who agree to complete drug

anyone knows other states taking similar steps?
