Baldwin Prison still on schedule to open despite California budget problems

A budget crisis in California has delayed training at a former youth facility in Baldwin recently renovated to house inmates from the golden state. Officials from the Geo Group, which renovated what is now called the North Lake Correctional Facility, have assured local officials the facility will open in Spring and house California inmates; however a training session at the prison was delayed amid ongoing budget problems in California. Geo Group has a contract to house 2,580 inmates during next four years. The contract is expected to provide as many as 500 jobs. (MRN)
