State Prison Slated For Closure Will Stay Open Into September


Two state prisons that had been scheduled for closure by the end of August will remain open into September, at least.

 

The state Department of Corrections has ordered workers at the Tamms supermax prison and the Dwight women’s facility to continue reporting to work for now.

 

Governor Pat Quinn’s plan to close the prisons and transfer their populations to other correctional centers is tied up in a court fight and arbitration.

 

AFSCME has sued, saying the move will increase dangerous overcrowding through the rest of the state’s prison system.
