State lawmaker questions Thomson proposal
State Senator Mike Jacobs says it would not be good government policy to give the Thomson Correctional Center to the federal government. That suggestion came in a letter from State Representatives Jim Sacia and Rich Morthland. The two Republicans have sent a letter to Governor Pat Quinn saying that handing over Thomson to the feds would get the ball rolling on creating much needed jobs for the area surrounding Thomson.
