AFSCME is extremely happy with an Alexander County judge's decision yesterday to keep Governor Pat Quinn from closing some Illinois prisons.
Lindall says Governor Pat Quinn's prison closures are short-sighted.
LIndall says the state Legislature gave the prisons funding for this year.
Council 31 spokesperson Anders Lindall says the injunction keeps the prison system from destabilizing and will keep more people safe. Quinn hasn't commented on the judge's decision. A veto session starts next month.
