NYSACDL Urges Governor to Fund Prison Legal Services

Prison Legal Services (PLS) was created in response to the Attica riot to provide inmates with legal representation on issues related to the conditions of confinement.  PLS provides vital assistance to state inmates helping them to get programming, medical and mental health care.  However, they are in danger of losing necessary funding.  NYSACDL urges Governor Cuomo and the State Legislators to include this important program in the 2011 – 2012 Executive Budget.
