First-The money is already in the budget to police the operation. Besides Michigan has shut down two adult prisons in Michigan. Private prisons will be a way to save the state money. Furthermore, a contract will need to be drawn up that Michigan and the corporation both understand will keep the public safe.
Second-Did you actually read the headline? The prison USED TO BE a youth facility. The corporation has turned it into an adult facility. Youth offenders are not and WILL NOT be housed there along with adults.
Maybe you should actually read the Bill and do some homework before you comment on it. Just a thought.
