NY lawmakers approve bill to bring solitary confinement to a halt

Lawmakers in NY approved legislation which seeks to limit the use of solitary confinement in New York prisons and jails. The Humane Alternatives to Solitary Confinement Act will limit any form of isolation exceeding 15 days and ban solitary confinement for vulnerable populations altogether, if signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo. There’s currently no limit on how long someone can spend in solitary.
