Lawmakers Object to Dangerous Inmates Transferring Out-of-State


Lawmakers are objecting to reports that the Quinn administration may seek to move some dangerous inmates to prisons out-of-state if the Tamms supermax prison is shut down as planned.

 

The governor’s office won’t confirm details of a proposal to move as many as nine inmates to prisons in other states, but acknowledge Illinois does have deals with other states to house inmates when dictated by safety issues or other needs.

 

Lawmakers who represent the area near Tamms say the move shows that Illinois cannot absorb the loss of the supermax prison, and accuse Quinn of outsourcing Illinois corrections jobs to other states.
