Prisons testing in-house toilet paper


DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Prison inmates in Iowa could soon be making their own toilet paper.  Inmates at prisons in Anamosa and Mitchellville are testing a single-ply tissue processed at a prison in Northwest Missouri.  Prison officials say so far, there have been no complaints about the paper.  Inmates could start processing toilet paper next year, if the legislature supports it.  Officials say it would save $100,000 a year compared with buying it from a vendor.  They say it would also create 50 jobs for inmates.
