Senate Committee Adds Support for Torrington Prison

Cheyenne, Wy – In the Wyoming Senate a committee recommended Torrington as the site for a new medium-security prison.
Torrington has the support of the Corrections Department, the House of Representatives and now this Senate committee.
Many officials from the city and county in Eastern Wyoming spoke in favor of the plan, but there are opponents to the idea from Goshen County. At the same time officials from Rawlins and Riverton are questioning the objectivity of the site selection process.
