HB 840 HD1    NEW OCCC NEAR HALAWA
http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/session2015/bills/HB840_HD1_.pdf

CAP POSITION: COMMENTS
This is that sloppy bill from the Lingle era for a correctional treatment facility that was just re introduced, never updated, and contained  conflicting information. Now it is a bill to move OCCC to Halawa. CAP has many issues with this, the first being the reduction of the population by providing community programs to help folks struggling with substance and mental health disorders. Both treatable, less costly, and more effective when addressed in the community. Why is it so
difficult to make this happen??? WE KNOW WHAT TO DO!!!  We have to keep pushing for the implementation of real alternatives to incarceration
