Topic: A Broader View / Will Barack Obama and his new administration have an impact on corrections issues?

I’m going to be interviewing Sen. Jim Webb’s press secretary about his proposed bill to “overhaul the criminal justice system” later in the week.

Sen. Webb is suggesting that the whole prison system is in need of reform and is proposing an 18 month study to decide what types of changes should be made. It seems that, given the momentum of the new administration, the bill has an excellent chance of passing

I want to know what types of questions other members of the Corrections Community would like to see answered during my interview. I am the editor for the online magazine, CorrectionsOne.com. I will be posting my whole interview on our website as part of a special report on Webb’s prison reform bill.

What I want to do is provide members of the corrections community with the opportunity to ask the senator their own questions (whether anonymously or not); to create an “open source” interview environment. Thus, if you have questions for Webb, please post them on this feed so I can ask them during the interview.

Here are a couple links with more information on what Sen. Webb is proposing:
