Brady Reaction to Attorney General Opinion on Sale of Thomson Correctional Center

From the Campaign Office of Senator Bill Brady for Governor
Thursday, December 17, 2009

Senator Bill Brady, Republican candidate for Governor, issued the following statement in response to Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s opinion regarding the proposed sale of the Thomson Correctional Center to the federal government:

“Because the legislature could be called on to vote on ceding state jurisdiction of the site at some point, I would urge the Governor to seek a vote in the General Assembly before any sale of the Thomson Correctional Center is completed. This is a serious matter, which I believe should be subject to full and open debate and complete transparency.”
