This should be a no brainer for the BOP. Baldin wants the facility. Balwin already has the facility built. If the Federal Government wants to help Michigan, here is a good place to start! JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!!!!!!!!!

Baldwin NEEDS this facility. Lake county NEEDS this facility. We all need jobs around here. There are people with Degrees that have been laid off and are moving out of state for employment. Not opening the new GEO prison in Baldwin would be irresponsible. Michigan is falling off the map!

Word in the corrections community is that Obama eliminated the funding for the project. No facility for Baldwin.

It's official, the Obama administration has cancelled the CAR 9. Here is a quote from a GEO press release:

George C. Zoley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GEO, said,“We are disappointed by
the BOP’s decision to cancel the CAR 9 Solicitation due to a funding shortfall. The BOP is a valued client of GEO’s, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with the agency at
our existing BOP contracted facilities. We will continue to market our expanded North Lake
Facility to federal, state, and local detention and correctional agencies around the country.”
