No public comment asked for, no public comment given. Utah tax payers should be
prepared to enrich a handful of powerful political insiders. This is corruption
at the highest level.
Isn't it funny that private prisons are an option when Senator Jenkins
receives money from the private prisons. No wonder he snuck that into the bill.
Amazing the level of back rooms deals this Leg. is doing. They are a black eye
to Utah but the citizens will still support them. The State promises money
savings when they went to 10 hour days anda 4 day work week a number of years
ago. The money wasn't saved. Jenkins is talking about how much money will
be saved but the money they promise in savings WILL NEVER HAPPEN! The was to
privatize corrections. This hurt Utah when we tried it before. Other states are
wanting to get out of privatized corrections but it would cost them waty to much
as they dropped the State holdings. This is bad business. The whole plan as it
stands is currupt. These Leg. are in it to make themselves money not help the
State. It's wrong and we need to make our voices heard!
Relocating the prison is fiscally wrong. Privatizing prisons is morally wrong.
Voting for these corrupt legislators is both.
Socialize the risk and privatize the benefits. I'm sure the developers in
the legislature have already secured their purchase of the state land and will
make a hefty profit on the development. Doesn't pass the smell test.
