Rutherford supports keeping DCC open
Treasurer wants strategic plans for all major state facilities
SPRINGFIELD — Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford says Dwight Correctional Center should not close, as proposed by the governor earlier this year.
"Our state prisons are overcrowded as it is; it’s only going to make the problem worse if we shutdown the Dwight prison,” Rutherford said. “Overcrowded prisons pose a real danger to employees and local communities.”
The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees states that if the governor’s proposed prison closures happen, female correctional facilities will be operating at 183 percent of their design capacity.
