Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Corrections experts and administrators interviewed for this study (see below) agreed that the no-frills movement is already widespread and gaining momentum. In addition, a 1995 survey conducted by Corrections Compendium found that 60 percent of responding departments of corrections (DOCs) in 46 states reported that some inmate privileges had been eliminated in the year before the survey, and several other departments reported that restrictions had been imposed on obtaining certain privileges (Wunder, 1995). As part of a survey of 21 states conducted by the State Justice Institute (1995), commissioners of corrections in California, Mississippi, and Oklahoma reported that as of late 1994 there was "a well-defined movement to eliminate creature comforts" in their states, and four other commissioners indicated there was some no-frills activity in their states.

Much of the public debate about eliminating inmate privileges has been conducted in an information vacuum--or with misinformation. To be sure, the no-frills movement is in flux: existing legislation has only recently become effective; additional bills are pending in several states; and, while some legal suits have already been filed challenging restrictions in some states and other suits are sure to follow, no definitive court rulings have been issued that bear directly on the issue. Nonetheless, it is not too soon to provide policy makers and the public with information regarding the manner in which privileges have been eliminated or restricted and the effects the no-frills movement has had on inmate management. At a minimum, this information, provisional as it may be as the no-frills movement expands, can help legislators, correctional managers, and other interested parties base future correctional decisions on as much informed opinion and reliable information as are available currently.
