Talk of prison move preliminary

Posted: Wednesday, June 6, 2007 1:00 am

Talk of relocating the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Central Unit from Fort Bend to Brazoria County is preliminary, prison officials said.

A study of the Sugar Land Central Unit is included in a bill passed this legislative session dealing with continued operations of the prison system. The bill is awaiting Gov. Rick Perry’s signature.

John Whitmire, D-Houston, calls for a study into the feasibility of selling the land on which the 950-bed Central Unit now stands, said TDCJ spokeswoman Michelle Lyons.
