Web Resources: See What Your State Spends on Corrections with the Vera Institute’s New Tool

leave a comment »

The Vera Institute’s new interactive feature makes it easy to find out how much your state is spending on corrections, and where it’s getting the money — at least if your state is among the 44 that responded to a Vera Institute survey. The feature is the online component to a new Vera Institute report, The Continuing Fiscal Crisis in Corrections. Among other features, you can compare 2011 with 2010 spending, and find out how much federal stimulus money was poured into corrections in your state. With this new tool combined with the Sentencing Project’s interactive state-by-state map, it’s easier than ever to quickly find or confirm corrections-related data by state.
