Lawmakers want to use prison in Appleton

Email

ST. PAUL -- Some Minnesota legislators want to move more prisoners from state facilities to a private prison, saving the state $12 million in the next two years.

Others object, saying prisons should be a state, not private, enterprise.

The 776 medium-security prisoners at the Moose Lake prison would be transferred to the Appleton facility under a bill promoted by Rep. Torrey Westrom, R-Elbow Lake, and Sen. Bill Ingebrigtsen, R-Alexandria.
