I heard of a prison closing but, I don't know the name. That sounds right if that prison closes guys will be moved and hopefully sent to their correct level. It is to the point that people are not even at their correct level because there is not enough bed space because of overcrowding.

I thought that I heard something about SAI closing is that true? How many prisons are they going to be closing one or more? My husband heard that they were going to try to close 2 but I thought that was a rumor.

SAI was suppose to close Oct. 1, 2010 but was saved at the last minute by budget shinanigans. Basically it was proven that closing it would cause longer stays that cost more money.

According to Russ Marlin, spokesman for the DOC, they are looking at closing one prison even though the cuts being asked of them (50 million) equate to the operating budgets of two facilities.

I haven't heard which facility is on the chopping block. Jackson Temp works for me.
