Bill Clements that state law requires him to take additional steps to reduce the inmate population. Meanwhile, the attorney general's office Thursday asked U.S. District Judge William Wayne Justice of Tyler for permission to postpone by 30 days, because of construction delays at a new facility, a plan to reduce the population at 15 of the state's existing prisons. The Texas Department'of Corrections agreed in a May 1985 court settlement of a prison-reform lawsuit to reduce its inmante population at existing prisons by 3,889 prisoners. The state planned to transfer the inmates into trusty camps and into the new 2.250-bed Michaels Unit in Anderson County. The work camps arc completed, but a key portion of the Michael's Unit will not be finished in time to meet the court-imposed deadline, according to the motion.
