Gov. Quinn Rejects as Burdensome a FOIA for Prison Access

First, Gov. Pat Quinn rejected reporters' requests to tour Illinois prisons as he plans a major shakeup in the state's corrections system.


Now his administration is refusing to reveal precisely who has been allowed to see inside state penitentiaries during his three years in office.


In response to a Freedom of Information request by The Associated Press, Quinn's administration says it is too burdensome to reveal who has been allowed to enter.


Despite the governor's declaration that allowing reporters inside is a "security risk," prison officials say only individual wardens have information about tours by outside groups, and claim that top Department of Corrections brass don't keep track of who's coming and going.
