(This amendment eliminates proposed funding for the provision of reentry workshops for state inmates. Pursuant to the Department of Corrections' Reentry Plan, reentry services are supposed to begin upon an offender's entry into the prison system. Reentry plans are developed for each state inmate, including educational and vocational services, and reentry probation officer positions have been created that are responsible for working with state inmates prior to release and for ensuring they are prepared for probation supervision. Reentry councils also work with state inmates prior to release in many locations.)
