Rezin, Roth: Closures to cost money, not save it
Also advocating to keep DCC open because of its proximity to Chicago
CHANNAHON — State Senator Sue Rezin and State Rep. Pam Roth believe state facility closures, the closest being in Joliet and Dwight, could end up costing more, rather than saving the state money.
They expressed their beliefs during the legislative luncheon the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce and Industry hosted Tuesday at the Four Rivers Environmental Education Center in Channahon. During the event, Rezin and Roth informed attendees about the latest going on in Springfield.
Gov. Pat Quinn's plan will take most of the women from Dwight Correctional Center and move them downstate to Logan prison, where the state will build a $5 million in-take center. Such a center already exists at the Dwight prison, Rezin noted. Some of the female prisoners will also go to Sheridan Correctional Center.
