Quinn Blocked Again From Prison Closure Plan


Governor Pat Quinn is still being blocked from implementing his plan to close two Illinois prisons and other facilities.

 

A Southern Illinois judge is extending the injunction he issued that prevents the plan from going forward.

 

The judge sided with AFSCME, which claims there are serious safety issues raised by the plan to close the Tamms supermax prison and the Dwight Correctional Center, and to transfer those inmates to other, already-overcrowded facilities.

 

The governor’s office says the delay in implementing the closure plan is costing the state $7 million dollars a month.

 

A spokesman says Quinn will appeal the ruling.
