    Default Shutting down 13 more prisons in Texas?

    I got to see my honey yesterday, was great! He said he heard a rumor that the state of Texas was planning on shutting down 12 or 13 more prisons? Cant seem to find anything on this. I know rumors fly freely among the inmates. Would be interested to know. Can't imagine where they plan to put everyone. Not enough room now!

    Sounds like a rumor. I believe the closing of prisons has to be passed by the Texas Legislature. Nothing happened with that last year and they aren't in session again until 2013.
    Never give up on something you can't go a day without thinking about.

    I couldn't find no recent News but here is a link to a search I did where they were talking about it but then decided not to. But the dates on the news reports are from 2010 - 2011

    Here is another link that has Prison News If you check out the Archives on the right side of the page down by the bottom there are links to recent news but it seems like it is all about private Jails and Prison facilities.
