We have a complete wrap-up of the special legislative session on prisons. Lt. Gov. Will Ainsworth will join us to discuss the plan to build several new prisons. Rep. Chris England of Tuscaloosa, the chair of the Alabama Democratic Party, will talk with us about his contention that new prisons won’t solve our problems behind bars. House Judiciary Committee chair Jim Hill of Moody will join us to discuss the pair of prison reform measures he sponsored in the special session. And Alabama Hospital Association President Dr. Don Williamson will be with us to talk about continued concerns over our COVID death rate, as well as our decreasing case counts and hospitalizations.
