2011 Senate Bill 877: Authorize prison privatization (Senate Roll Call 115)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 20 to 18 in the Senate on March 7, 2012, to allow, but not require, the Department of Corrections to contract out the incarceration of prisoners to a private prison in a five year contract, if doing so would save at least 10 percent. This could include a contract to house adult prisoners at the former Michigan youth correctional facility in Baldwin, a privately owned and managed prison whose previous contract with the state was revoked by Gov. Jennifer Granholm in 2005.
