MassINC is proud to present another installment in our “Justice Reinvestment At-A-Glance” research brief series. Revisiting Correctional Expenditure Trends in Massachusetts updates our 2017 report, Getting Tough on Spending. Our new analysis incorporates final expenditures through FY 2017, and projects outward using the House and Senate Ways and Means FY 2019 budget proposals. We hope that our research provides timely information as leaders on Beacon Hill look for ways to resource the implementation of the sweeping criminal justice reform legislation signed by Governor Baker last month.
