Breaking the Cycle: Poverty to Prison and Back

At a time when bipartisan policy change seems infrequent, if not impossible, Louisiana lawmakers and Governor Edwards successfully enacted sweeping prison reforms aimed at reducing the state’s world-leading incarceration rate and its $700M annual price tag. The policy wins can be credited, in large part, to the support from LABI and many in the state’s business community.
