The handcuffs are off
(MCT) — It looks like Illinois will finally gain the 1,100 jobs that will come from converting the vacant Thomson Correctional Center into a federal maximum security prison. It will also get the $165 million that the U.S. Bureau of Prisons agreed to pay for the facility. It’s about time.
The sale has been up in the air for more than a year while the White House, the Illinois congressional delegation and Gov. Pat Quinn tried to reason with a hard-headed Virginia congressman who wouldn’t release the funding.
