Hanson reacts to Evers hesitancy on Green Bay prison replacement

Governor-elect Tony Evers is making reductions in Wisconsin's prison population a priority.  So, Evers has questioned the need to build a replacement for the 120-year-old Green Bay Correctional Institution.  Supporters of a new prison say it takes more people to staff GBCI than a new facility.  Democratic State Senator Dave Hansen of Green Bay sees drawbacks to retaining Green Bay Correctional and replacing it.


Hansen also says he would not support replacing Green Bay Correctional with a privately run prison.  He says such facilities nationwide have a spotty success record.
