New York State closes two minimum security prisons

From the NYCOM summary of legislation passed in New York State in 2010:

Prison Closures

Due to the declining prison population, the 2010-11 Budget authorizes the closure of two prisons in January 2011: Lyon Mountain minimum security in Clinton County and Butler minimum security in Wayne County.

(Chapter 56, effective January 2011)
 
The Brockport Unitarian Universalist Fellowship has a small prison ministry lead by David Markham who tries to keep abreast of criminal justice issues and the response by people of faith.
