Alabama governor Kay Ivey and attorney general Steve Marshall are blasting the state parole board's plan to fix its "catch and release" system.

In October Ivey and Marshall told the board to reform its policies and come up with a new plan.

The governor and attorney general now say there are too many unanswered questions in the board's corrective action plan.

Ivey and Marshall say early parole should be an extraordinary occurrence, and are directing the parole board to overhaul it policies regarding early release.

The state parole board is still under a 75-day moratorium and cannot release violent inmates early.
