amend its rules governing new and existing jail, lock-up, and
, ' low-risk design, construction, and furnishing requirements.. .
The rules are being amended by eliminating ambiguities so as
to avoid misinterpretation and by providing clarity and pre-
ciseness to the rules to reflect the intent of the commission.
Specifically, the commission proposes to clarify the dimension
requirements for single cells, separation cells, multiple-occu-
pancy cells, dormitories, and day rooms by expanding the
Above as: "All inmate accommodations to include single cells,
separation cells, etc... The rules on furnishing requirements
add the words, "fire-resistive," to the specifications for inmate
bunks. Various other clarifications are also being proposed
concerning padding for violent cells; inmate entrances into
processing areas; obtaining commissary supplies; table and
seating in multiple-occupancy cells and dormitories; and pro-
viding sufficient ventilation.
