Say No to $1 Billion for Federal Prison Construction

INFO ONLY -- THE FINAL BILL DROPPED FUNDING FOR PRISON CONSTRUCTION

The Senate's version of the economic stimulus package includes $1 Billion for buildings and facilities for the federal prison system. This funding comes at a time when we need to be shrinking prison population. The United States with only 5% of the world's population has 25% of the world's prisoners. Let's stimulate our economy by reducing the prison population and encouraging job growth.

THANKS TO ALL WHO SUPPORTED THIS ACTION! I'LL CANCEL IT IN A FEW DAYS.
