NH Testing the Private Prison Waters
Quick link here to an article discussing how New Hampshire might become the latest state to start sending prisoners to private facilities, as it has requested proposals from companies to construct 1,500 beds to help manage its population. CCA, MTC, and the GEO Group have all submitted bids, which are for the moment confidential. The state has not confirmed that it will indeed move forward with plans to bring a private prison online, but this isn't exactly a positive development.
