03 - 13 - 2012 House Committee to hold hearing on Fleck’s prison nursing bill
The state House Majority Policy Committee has scheduled an informational hearing in Huntingdon for Friday on a Bill sponsored by Rep. Mike Fleck which would prohibit the Department of Corrections from hiring outside companies to manage the nursing services provided at PAâs state prisons. Fleckâs bill is in response to Gov. Tom Corbettâs recent decision to empanel a commission to evaluate potential privatization, public-private partnerships or managed-competition opportunities with the goal of cutting the costs of state government.
