Lawmakers look to increase oversight of prison

Nebraska lawmakers are looking at ways to increase oversight of the state's troubled prison system. The Department of Correctional Services came under fire after lawmakers learned state officials failed to follow two Nebraska Supreme Court rulings that explained how to determine prison sentences. Sen. Brad Ashford of Omaha, is calling for a special session, although Gov. Dave Heineman and many lawmakers say one isn't necessary. Ashford says he's drafting legislation to create an oversight commission for the department.
