Several lawmakers in Harrisburg are pushing a Bill that would prohibit placing certain inmates in solitary confinement. Proposals have been introduced in both the House and Senate. Senator Larry Farnese (D-Philadelphia) and Representative Tina Davis (D-Bucks) are sponsoring Bills to put an end to what they call an inhumane practice.
“Let’s be very clear about this. Solitary confinement is a form of torture, and it must be limited,” Senator Farnese says.
