(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill that makes significant changes to the Washington State Department of Corrections is making its way through the Legislature.  The Senate has signed off on the measure, which would enact recommendations made by a Senate committee last year after an investigation of the early releases of more than three-thousand prisoners across Washington.  Spokane Valley Senator Mike Padden says the 49-0 vote offers a general recognition of the serious and systemic management problems within the state corrections department.  The bill will next be heard by a House committee.
