The meltdown predicted after the closure of Tamms hasn’t happened. Yes, there’s been a lot of media coverage of problems in the prison system, but it doesn’t appear that ex-inmates from Tamms are pushing assaults up.

Dillard also wants to force the income tax hike to expire in 2015, so there will be even less money to reopen a shuttered prison and keep another facility running.
