Big Decision Looming For Dwight Correctional Center

Posted by wlpo on April 25, 2012

An important vote on the future of the Dwight Correctional Center will happen next week.

The Illinois Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability will vote next Tuesday in Springfield on the proposed closure of the Dwight prison.  The commission’s recommendation is non-binding so Governor Quinn and lawmakers don’t have to agree with the recommendation.

The state commission will also vote on closing Tamms Correctional Center, Illinois Youth Center at Joliet, and Peoria Adult Transition Center.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
