McDonnell To Propose New Funding For Ex-Offender Re-Entry Programs

In Virginia, Governor Bob McDonnell is set to recommend new funding for prisoner re-entry and rights restoration when he lays out his two-year spending plan next week.

The governor's budget, which will be released next Monday, will include funding for both policy areas.

The prisoner re-entry initiatives include funding for emergency housing for offenders upon release and increased funds for inmate education programs. The governor's budget will also provide funding to match a federal grant for substance abuse treatment services.

On the rights restoration initiative, McDonnell is proposing increased funding to support the operations and management of the automatic restoration of civil rights process.
