UT Gov. calls for prison reform, relocation talks
Question of the Day
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah Gov. Gary Herbert is calling for continued discussion on a potential move of the state prison.
Herbert made the remarks during his annual State of the State speech Wednesday evening.
Utah’s prison population is on track to outgrow the 700-acre Draper facility in the next two decades.
The 60-year-old facility takes up space in a bustling tech corridor where companies such as Adobe and eBay have settled.
Supporters of the move say building a new, more efficient prison could cut state costs.
Options include replacing it at a price tag of $942 million; phasing it out by 2024 at a cost of $908.1 million; or to phase it out by 2020 at a cost of $851.6 million.
The governor is also requesting reforms to the larger state justice system.
