One of the hardest things to do when inmates get out of prison, is to find jobs. Let alone good jobs. Today, Governor Bevin unveiled a new apprenticeship program that will help inmates learn skilled jobs. This will help inmates meet employers and receive training while still serving their time. Then, once they are released, they will be more prepared to find good jobs.
Today, Governor Bevin introduced a new law to help convicts’ re-entry into society. Senate Bill 120 (SB120) was introduced to the KY Senate for consideration by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Senator Whitney Westerfield sponsored the bill. The purpose of the Bill is to help those who have served their time to get jobs and treatment. This bill resulted from the Criminal Justice Reform panel that Governor Bevin initiated this past summer.
