Liane Rozzell writes:

We are opposed to dismantling the Department of Correctional Education (DCE) and putting its functions in the Departments of Correction and Juvenile Justice (DOC and DJJ). The primary mission of DCE is education. The primary missions of DOC and DJJ are not and never will be education. Under this plan, it is likely that education, which is critical to successful re-entry, will receive short shrift.

Further, this bill does not contain explicit provisions to ensure that education within DJJ and DOC facilities will be overseen by qualified superintendents and meet all state standards.

Mike Coston writes:

I am opposed to any portions of the bill that are not properly funded. Also moving employee mediation into DRHM effectively kills any benefit to the employees, and while moving consumer affairs investigations into the AG's office looks good on paper, those employees are currently paid using funds generated through the regulatory (non-general revenue funds)money. How will they be compensated and/or funded? Moving DCE to DOC won't work - DOC is security not education, and they need to consider federal mandates requiring education in the prisons,
