allow non-vioent prisoners to beautify our road ways by pickng-up trash, paint roadways, make & install road signs, mow grass on highways & low risk security federal buildings & parks and snow removal. Train them (1 week? ) class to operate small equipment. Assign 1 federal maintenace employee & an correctional officer to supervise 10 to 15 inmates. Guidelines and qualifications would have to be established as to which prisoners would qualify for; "The Give Back to America Program" In most states & federal agencies this type of work is contracted out for millions each year. At the conclusion of their prison term prisoners would have developed a skill set that may allow them to be a vaulabel assest in society.
