Judge Halts Quinn's Prison Closure Plan

A Southern Illinois judge has put a halt to the Quinn administration’s efforts to close prisons, youth centers and transition centers, at least for now.


The judge issued a temporary restraining order in the aftermath of an arbitrator’s ruling last week that Quinn’s closure plan violates union contracts and must be collectively bargained with AFSCME.


The ruling means that facilities from Decatur to Dwight to the Tamms supermax prison will remain open while the state and union hammer out their differences.
