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 ( 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 (

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.
