The Maryland House of Delegates appears ready to pass a bill that would give prison inmates time off their sentences for earning high-school diplomas and other degrees, despite complaints from Republicans and some Democrats that the measure extends an undeserved privilege to some of the state's worst criminals.
"We have to be able to make sure that prisons are run smoothly and are not violent places," said Delegate Kathleen M. Dumais, Montgomery Democrat. "This is something that will help with that. Allowing someone to get an education is not something anyone should be ashamed of voting for."
