Durbin: Feds move ahead on prison
No timeline given on facility’s opening
THOMSON – U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said he received assurances Thursday that the federal government is making progress toward the opening of the long-dormant prison in Thomson.
Durbin released a statement about Thomson after he and Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-East Moline, met with Charles Samuels, the federal Bureau of Prisons’ director.
“When President Obama releases his budget in the next few weeks, it should include funding for prison activation,” Durbin said.
