As the session winds down, State Senator Chris Telfer of Bend says there's still a $21 million hole in the public safety budget. "One of the things you might be looking at is people being released from prison; and we're trying to avoid that.” State Senator Telfer says a $21 million shortfall in the public safety budget, and Senator Chris Telfer says, that can mean some can mean some tough decisions. “That would be one of my biggest concerns; that we don’t start releasing people out of prison earlier. Voters of Oregon have mandating stricter sentences and expanding the sentences. And we’re trying to find the dollars to actually implement that.” Voters recently mandated longer sentences for some crimes, and Senator Telfer says the state needs to find the money to carry out that requirement.
