...and it's families that lose.
Travis County Commissioners have until September 29th to pass a budget that will restore in-person visitation to families and their incarcerated loved ones, but they’ve started back-peddling.
Earlier this month, Travis County received an exemption from compliance with a new law that says all Texas counties are obligated to provide two, in-person, face-to-face visits per week to inmates in county jails. Despite this fact,Travis County was on the right path to voluntarily restoring in-person visits….until last week’s budget hearing.
Don’t let Travis County Commissioners Court and the Sheriff’s Office play the blame game with each other! Families are the only losers in this game.
