North Country Public Radio - 02-15


Governor Cuomo announced Friday that three state correctional facilities will close under the new state spending plan. "In my first State of the State address eight years ago, I said prisons are not a jobs program. Since then, I am proud to have closed more prisons than any governor in history," Cuomo said in a statement, adding that more facilities will now be mothballed.
