House subcommittee meeting to discuss prison’s future

Meeting is open to the public


LANSING ¬– On Aug. 12, at 10:30 a.m., the Michigan House of Representatives subcommittee on corrections reform, a subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee, will meet to discuss the future of Standish Max, says a press release from District 103 Rep. Joel Sheltrown (D – West Branch).

The meeting is open to the public.

“On the agenda will be the anticipated closure of the Standish Maximum Correction Facility. Also discussed will be two alternatives to the closure. These include an Interstate Corrections Compact with the State of California to house California prisoners or housing some terrorism suspects currently housed at the federal government's Guantanamo Bay Naval Base and Detention Camp. No vote is expected to be taken at the Wednesday meeting,” the press release said.

Discussion will take place in Room 308 of the House Office Building located on 124 North Capitol. Sheltrown says those who cannot attend can e-mail questions to him at dist103@house.mi.gov, adding that he will forward these questions to the subcommittee.
