PRISON UNVEILED: Branstad Unhappy With Financing
Governor Branstad officially unveiled the first of two new state prisons, Monday. This $85-million upgrade to the Iowa Correctional Facility for Women in Mitchellville is designed to be a more open and a more hi-tech prison. The governor says the improvements will require fewer staff members. Former Governor Chet Culver used the I-JOBS bonding plan to help pay for the prison.
