Prison Bill Coming Before Senate

Cheyenne, WY – Senators are set to take on the issue of where to put the new Medium Security prison. Lobbyists from Torrington, the site picked by the Department of Corrections, and Rawlins have been lobbying Senators on the issue. Senator Curt Meier, who represents Goshen County, defends the Department of Corrections choice of Torrington, saying their workforce is set up for the prison. Senators say they hope the issue does not get political, but they expect some politics to crop up during initial discussion of the bill Tuesday.
