More on Whitmire's TYC plans
Following up on this discussion of Sen. John Whitmire's idea for downsizing the Texas Youth Commission and shifting more responsibility to counties, an aide to Sen. Whitmire forwarded me a copy of this written testimony (pdf) from our pal Marc Levin with the Texas Public Policy Foundation. The accompanying email declares "it is along the same lines as [the senator's] thoughts on additional reformation of TYC and the strengthening of resources for the juvenile probation system." Those interested in where the Senator wants to take the agency should be sure to give it a read.
