Prison glossary - State issue

State issue: A term used loosely by prisoners and staff to refer to anything the prison is required by policy to provide a prisoner. Some items -such as toilet tissue, soap, toothpaste, and razor- are passed out on a weekly or biweekly basis. Other items -like clothes, bed sheets, towels- are issued only once every 6 months or yearly (if that, depending on where the prisoner is housed).
