Legislative Committee Rejects Facility Closures, But Vote Is Only Advisory


A legislative committee is rejecting Governor Pat Quinn’s call to close several state facilities… but the vote may not prevent those closures. 

 

The Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability voted 7-3 against closing the Tamms Supermax prison and the women’s prison in Dwight.  The legislative panel also voted against closing the Murray Developmental Center in Centralia and reaffirmed its vote last fall opposing the shutdown of the Jacksonville Developmental Center. 

 

But all the votes are advisory… and Quinn can proceed with the closures despite the committee’s opposition.
