Default State might have to close 2 prisons


SC Senator: State might have to close 2 prisons
From Businessweek
February 5, 2011
A state Senate leader warned that South Carolina lawmakers may be forced to consider releasing inmates early and shutting two prisons to save money if budget officials won't let them run a deficit, but closing any prisons would require reshuffling prisoners and any savings would take months to realize.
Senate Corrections Committee Chairman Mike Fair raised that highly unlikely alternative Thursday as one way for the cash-strapped prisons to avoid operating in the red the rest of the fiscal year ending June 30. He said, however, that he would prefer the Budget and Control Board allow the prisons to run a deficit of up to $7 million until then.
The five-member board, led by Gov. Nikki Haley, is expected to vote next week on whether to allow Corrections and two other Cabinet agencies to operate in the red through June 30.

"Enough to hold you to the brightest of lights,
to place you dangerously close to that sun,
enough to acknowledge the flaws you can't ignore
and recognize the cause of what's done is done..."
