N.D. PRISON OVERCROWDING: Officials consider options

Lawmakers look at replacing cell house
By Dale Wetzel
Associated Press

BISMARCK - A $31 million plan to replace an ancient cell house on North Dakota's state penitentiary grounds appears to be gaining support among lawmakers who are studying ways to relieve overcrowding.

The project was suggested 18 months ago, but it was not seriously considered by the 2005 Legislature. It includes the demolition and replacement of the penitentiary's east cell house and construction of a new medical clinic, laundry, prisoner orientation unit and segregation cells for inmates with disciplinary problems.

It would add 123 beds to the main state prison in Bismarck, which now can hold about 550 inmates.

The east cell house, which is almost a century old, presents security and staffing problems, prison officials say.
