State corrections head says national report supports Doyle's prisoner release plan
State corrections' secretary Rick Raemisch says a new national report re-affirms Gov. Jim Doyle's prison strategy.
The Pew Center on the States said Wisconsin's incarceration rate exploded by over 400 percent over the last quarter century.
The Badger State now has one person in jail or prison for every 109 residents, the 28th highest rate in the country.
