Corrections program enhancements approved

A corrections program that provides employment for inmates will be enhanced by a bill given final approval April 1.

LB1080, introduced by Hastings Sen. Les Seiler, increases the purchasing limit for Cornhusker State Industries (CSI), the state Department of Correctional Services industries program, from $25,000 to $50,000.

The bill also authorizes recycling of materials used by CSI in the production of goods and services and allows CSI to retain the recycling proceeds in order to purchase raw materials for future projects.

LB1080 passed on a 48-0 vote.
