MARYVILLE, MO (2009-11-05) Savannah Senator Brad Lager hosts several lawmakers on a tour of the State prison in Maryville.
It's part of the Joint Committee on correction's personal inspection of State correctional facilities. Members started last week touring prisons and visited both the Maryville treatment center and the center in St. Joseph yesterday. Lager says several of his colleagues specifically asked to see the Maryville compound, which used to be a sister's convent. Lawmakers are taking inventory of possible capital improvements our prisons will need in the next 3 to 5 years. They'll visit the new Chillicothe Correctional Center tomorrow.
