PIERRE, S.D.- The South Dakota Department of Corrections has announced that Wanda Markland has been named the Warden of the South Dakota Women’s Prison. “Wanda brings years of correctional experience to our department in administrative, management and security positions” said Corrections Secretary Denny Kaemingk. “We’re excited to add her to our team in Pierre.” Markland comes to South Dakota from the Tennessee Department of Corrections, where she serves as Associate Warden of Treatment at the West Tennessee State Penitentiary near Henning, TN. She has held counselor, unit supervisor, classification director, case manager and correctional officer positions in Tennessee and Michigan in her corrections career. “The position of Warden at the South Dakota Women’s Prison offers an opportunity to utilize my experience as well as explore new areas of interest in the field of corrections,” said Markland. Markland earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice from Saginaw Valley State University. Markland will begin her new position in August. She replaces Brent Fluke, who was named the warden of the Mike Durfee State Prison in Springfield following the retirement of Bob Dooley. The state closed Fiscal Year 2018 (July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018) with 4,001 total prison inmates, a new record high population. That includes 564 female inmates. Eighty-six percent of the female prison population on June 30, 2018 were inmates sentenced for non-violent crimes. Nearly two-thirds of the female inmates (64 percent) were serving time for drug offenses at the end of state Fiscal Year 2018. Under Obamacare, we pay a 2.3 percent tax on medical devices, which include everything from powered wheelchairs to replacement heart valves to examination gloves. This tax has led to an estimated 22,000 job losses between 2013 and 2015 and as much as a $2 billion reduction in research budgets. The House-passed bill, which I helped introduce, would repeal this tax. Additionally, we passed provisions I wrote to delay the Health Insurance Tax (or HIT). indiscretions continues. In late-July, the House passed legislation I authored to bring a bit more commonsense to the agency’s hiring and firing process. In 2016, the Treasury Department reported that over a 15-month period, the IRS had rehired more than 200 people who had previously been terminated for misconduct or performance issues. Some had mishandled sensitive taxpayer information; others had abused taxpayer resources; one even had “DO If you don’t get the word out about your business, no one else will!!!
