IL Supreme Court Gives Gov. Go Ahead For Prison Closures

Updated:

The Illinois Supreme Court is siding with Governor Pat Quinn's effort to close state prisons. An injunction that was stopping Quinn from making the closures has been removed by justices.

Since last summer, Quinn has been planning to close prisons in a number of cities to save money.

A judge stopped the plan due to a lawsuit by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.

The court decided Quinn did follow proper procedures with the labor union in shutting down these state facilities.
