Coffee: Lerblance’s Prison Plan Premature Until Audit Results Received

State Capitol, Oklahoma City – State Sen. Glenn Coffee, the co-president pro tempore of the Oklahoma Senate, said Thursday that prison legislation proposed by Democrat Sen. Richard Lerblance is premature.

“It is premature to choose a course of action for the Department of Corrections until the Legislature receives the report of the independent performance audit of prisons at the end of this year,” said Coffee, R-Oklahoma City.

“Senate Republicans believe the first priority of government is to protect the public, and we will lead the effort to keep violent, dangerous, and repeat criminals off the streets and behind bars where they belong,” Coffee stated.
