Jim will talk about the affordability, tax benefits that may be available and contracts.

Since New Jersey’s prison population reached more than 31,000 in 1999, the state has taken a leadership role in prison reform efforts, implementing research and scientific needs assessment and evidence-based treatment interventions.
