Iowa inmates may start making toilet paper to save prison system money!
DES MOINES, Iowa - Iowa prisons could soon be stocking prison-made toilet paper to save taxpayers money and provide jobs to inmates.
The Des Moines Register newspaper reported on Thursday that inmates at two Iowa prisons are testing a single-ply tissue processed at a Missouri prison.
Roger Baysden, director of Iowa Prison Industries, says Iowa inmates could start processing their own toilet paper next year — if the Legislature supports the idea.
Iowa prisons use about 900,000 rolls of toilet paper annually. Processing it in-house would save about $100,000 a year and would create jobs for about 50 inmates.
Al Reiter, the associate warden at the prison in Anamosa, Iowa, says the paper is not fluffy but the state says it's an acceptable roll.

Great idea. Put them to work and save some tax dollars. Now they just need to cut off the cable and have them grow their own food.

Great idea, all prisons should be self sufficient to reduce the tax burden for housing and feeding criminals.

There is so much that needs doing in this country, road repair, maintainence and repair of public buildings, collecting litter, etc., yet we let a workforce of over 1,000,000 vacation on the taxpayers dime. Utter nonsense!

The problem with putting convicts to work on these projects is that it takes paying jobs away from American citizens.

As far as I'm concerned, if you've been sentenced to life, you are now an unjustifiable drain on society, and a bullet and a shovel cost about $20.

Cable, AC, internet. They are criminals, and live better inside than out.
