Approval memo

Result: Approved

I have reviewed the proposed regulation on a preliminary basis.  While I reserve the right to take action during the final adoption period, I approve the advancement of this regulation for the purpose of soliciting public comment.  In addition to issues raised by the public, I would like the Board to consider the extent to which any of the new rules could adversely impact the well-being of the inmates, as well as whether any of the changes tend to influence programming policy decisions (such as recreation and visitation policies) rather than facility standards.
