The Vandalia Correctional Center is apparently not one of the state facilities that Gov. Pat Quinn has targeted for closure as part of his effort to cut state spending.
According to a story on the State Journal-Register website, Quinn is proposing the closure of seven facilities:
- Tinley Park Mental Health Center - 195 staff members
- Singer Mental Health Center, Rockford - 150 staff members
- Chester Mental Health Center - 464 staff members
- Jacksonville Developmental Center - 420 staff members
