Bill introduced to make criminal youth facilities safer for workers

A bill is headed to the governor aimed at making state-run criminal youth facilities safer for the people who work there.
The bill requires the OCFS commissioner to hand over information NewsChannel 13 fought to get, after talking to a man who was assaulted by a young criminal. She will be required to deliver a yearly report to lawmakers including staffing levels, workers comp numbers, and the number of incidents. Senator Kathy Marchione thinks this will hold OCFS accountable.
The bill still has to go through the governor. It would require his administration to be more transparent.
