A Senate committee has unanimously endorsed Robert Hofmann of Waterbury to be the new corrections commissioner. The Senate Judiciary Committee put him on notice, though, that legislators are opposed to any plans to send female prisoners out of state.

Hofmann says the administration is considering a variety of options for dealing with the growing number of women in prison. He says sending them out of state would be the last choice, but it’s one of the options being considered.
