Guards at Texas Youth Commission facilities are going to get their overtime.

The T-Y-C resumed paying the overtime and will soon release payments held over the past month with checks being issued by the middle of December for November over time hours.

Overtime payments were suspended back in October, because the agency had used most of its budget in the previous two months.

Officials said a shortage of corrections officers contributed to the glut of overtime.

The agency plans to develop a uniform staffing plan by January.
