Relating to the provision of vocational training to inmates confined in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice transfer facility.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 3606 would require the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to adopt a policy under which someone from a public or private entity would be permitted to provide voluntary vocational training to inmates in transfer facilities.
Texas Action supports HB 3606 because it would promote personal responsibility. Signing up for vocational training from industry professionals teaches inmates crucial skills and reduces recidivism, ultimately lowering state spending on incarceration.
