The Act provides for privately-operated prisons to utilize state inmate labor in the same way that state-run prisons utilize inmate labor. Profits from any labor or products by these inmates will go to the state. The Act also provides for an official custodian of the Department of Corrections records and provides that certified records of the Department of Corrections be admissible in civil and criminal proceedings.
