Quinn to allow prison tours
SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Gov. Pat Quinn appears to be backing away from his position that visits by reporters to Illinois prisons constitute a security risk.

Correction spokeswoman Stacey Solano says despite the change, “safety and security continues to be the department’s top priority.”
