Gov. Asa Hutchinson's more than half-billion-dollar spending plan at prisons and community corrections received a tepid reaction from lawmakers Wednesday, with some already saying they'll seek additional funds to hire more probation and parole officers.

You know what, people don’t get it both ways...the crime is out of control, the inmates are out of control, but they don’t want to spend actual money to work towards a solution. The people that work at ADC and DCC are poorly paid, but we can spend millions for a severance package of that fat, worthless football coach that got fired. Good priorities. No wonder the state is in the toilet. I’m glad to see that AR hasn’t lost sight of what’s important.
