Not actually a "new" facility- it's a jail that was built but never put into operation. The city of Hardin has apparently struck a deal with a very questionable private firm to finally get the facility in use.... it's not going to happen now that it's become public, Montanan's will pitch a MASSIVE fit and our population is still small enough and our State Government still responsive enough that very little manages to get swept under a rug.Here is more (http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2009/10/montana_town_reassures_public_on_apf_there_are_no. php?ref=mp) (TPM has several items on this issue)
And the Montana Attorney General has launched an investigation into the matter, That story here (http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5ifOx0LPKy5B_0KAyPHyNTEqdQz6QD9B2JAIG0)

I can't help wondering if the officials in Hardin are complicit in a really shady deal or if, as has happened before, the Montanan faith that a handshake and a man's word mean something has bitten Hardin in the butt.
