Prisoner feeding bill passes the house unanimously


In an unanimous vote of the Alabama House of Representatives, the newly proposed legislation on feeding prisoners passed  in a vote of 102 for and 0 against.  The bill is now heading back to the Alabama Senate for another vote by that body due to an amended change that was made in the house.

This marks the first change in an old law that was created around 1928. In spite of all the media attention, no one was more instrumental in drafting and proposing this change than the 67 sheriffs of Alabama.
