Fitzgerald Skeptical Of Youth Prison Plan

(Juneau) Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says he doubts the governor’s plan to close the youth prison and overhaul juvenile corrections will pass without changes. The Juneau Republican calls the process to draft the legislation “horrendous.” Fitzgerald says he has not been given enough information about how it would work for him to support the plan. He does think there are enough Senate votes to close the youth prison only. Governor Scott Walker disagrees, saying he thinks it will make it through the Wisconsin Senate. Walker and Senate Republicans were meeting Wednesday to talk about the juvenile corrections plan, school safety and passing a 100-dollar per child tax credit.
