James Leblanc, the agency's head, told the House Appropriations Committee on Friday of an increasingly underfunded system that has shut down four prisons in the past eight years, absorbing 1,700 inmates into current state prisons and eliminating 700 staff positions. Leblanc estimated the cuts, since 2008, at 36 percent of the department's total budget.

"At this point, we don't have enough resources to do what we have to do," he said.
...
But Leblanc warned of class-action lawsuits if prisons cannot provide constitutionally mandated care for offenders, and he said that's the way the state is heading.
"That's the bottom line - we can't medicate, we can't feed them, and that becomes constitutional issues," Leblanc said.
Rep. Gary Carter, D-Algiers, said systemic problems that make Louisiana the most incarcerated state in the most incarcerated country in the world should be addressed. He called for broad overhaul of dealing with nonviolent offenders, saving taxpayers tens of millions of dollars per year.

BATON ROUGE -- State lawmakers find themselves caught between addressing long-term prison reform and preventing the state's fiscal crisis from worsening an already overburdened Department of Public Safety and Corrections.James Leblanc, the agency's head, told the House Appropriations Committee on Friday of an increasingly underfunded system that has shut down four prisons in the past eight years, absorbing 1,700 inmates into current state prisons and eliminating 700 staff positions. Leblanc estimated the cuts, since 2008, at 36 percent of the department's total budget."At this point, we don't have enough resources to do what we have to do," he said.The comments come during a legislative session that aims to address an estimated $850 million to $940 million state budget shortfall for the fiscal year that ends June 30.Some lawmakers asked about the viability of releasing nonviolent offenders, which would, by Leblanc's estimates, save taxpayers $47 million per year.But the committee was presented with three options for the current, more pressing, budget problem.One includes closing Winn and Allen correctional centers temporarily, saving $2.3 million but requiring the relocation of more than 1,000 prisoners who cannot be transferred to local jails because of mental or physical health problems or disciplinary issues.That plan would "saturate an already saturated system," he said, adding that each probation and parole officer handles 140 cases, 50 more than the average.Department Undersecretary Thomas Bickham pointed to an option that would use reductions in medical expenses, a reduced per-diem for contractors at the Winn and Allen facilities, a reduction in overtime and a host of other cost-saving measures.All three options include using $1.15 million accumulated from "canteen" collections that come from prisoners' purchases of snacks, soap and other basic goods.But Leblanc warned of class-action lawsuits if prisons cannot provide constitutionally mandated care for offenders, and he said that's the way the state is heading."That's the bottom line - we can't medicate, we can't feed them, and that becomes constitutional issues," Leblanc said.Rep.
