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.
