ALC Reviews Contract for DYS Juvenile Treatment Facilities


On Tuesday, May 14, the Arkansas Legislative Council met to review the proposed contract for Youth Opportunity Investments.

According to Senator Terry Rice the contract for YOI, LLC was reviewed during the sub-committee meeting. “As Senate Vice-Chair of Legislative Council I serve as a voting member on all of the ALC sub committees.  If it receives approval in review, it will go to the full ALC committee for final approval on Friday, May 17,” commented Rice.

He added that there have been talks of possible delay tactics from Rites Of Passage, the firm who initially won the contract but was disqualified. “I feel the previous over two year delay in getting a new contractor in place will lead to approval on May 17, and YOI, LLC taking charge July 1,” added Rice.
