Ray OKLAHOMA CITY-- Payne County Sheriff Carl Hiner was appointed recently by state House Speaker Glen D. Johnson to a special task force that will examine the plight of county jails across the state. The 20-member panel will include 10 county sheriffs, five legislators from the state House of Representatives and five members of the state Senate. Legislation which created the task force directed its members to review issues such as jail stan- dards, actual costs of incarcerat- ing prisoners in each county jail, the physical condition and the capacity of county jails, "the practices of each sheriff's office in obtaining, budgeting and ex- pending funds," the percentage of each county's budget devoted to the county jail, "expenses di- rectly relating to county correc- tions," "local sentencing prac- tices and policies affecting capac- ity and expenses of county jails or sheriff's offices," and methods to fund sheriffs' offices and county jails "to create a more unified system with appropriate standards for maintenance of prisoners." County jails in Oklahoma "have become so overcrowded and underfunded that a crisis exists," the legislation laments. The rate of incarceration "contin- ues to exceed the design capac- ity of existing correctional facili- ties and county jails..." The Oklahoma prison popu- lation has quadrupled since 1980 and doubled since 1986, records reflect. Oklahoma's correctional sys- tem is bulging with more than 19,700 convicted felons; nearly 500 of those convicts are lodged in county jails, straining sheriffs' budgets.

Every year many of Oklahoma's graduates must leave their state and families to seek careers elsewhere. That's wrong! Oklahoma must create new and better jobs for gradu- ates. Randy has lived here for over 20 years and he says it's time to stop talking about improving the Oklahoma educational system and job climate. It's time to act! As your senator, Randy will work for policies to protect the future and families of Lincoln, Logan and Payne counties. As a father, husband, business owner, church and civic leader, Randy Wedel doesn't just talk about family val- ues, he lives them. Won't you help Randy put the "value of family" back in focus at the state senate? With your help, Randy Wedel can make a difference for our families, schools and businesses.
