Billy: 'Being Smart With Public Dollars'

Rep. Lisa J. Billy
“While House Republicans believe there must be consequences for those who commit crimes, we do not believe the state must always utilize the most expensive punishment available. The reforms we have enacted have been shown to cost less while also reducing recidivism. We are working to preserve public safety while being smart with public dollars.” ~ Rep. Lisa J. Billy, R-Purcell and chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Public Safety, discussing changes in the correctional system advocated by House Republicans this year.
