TYC board to decide facility closures mañana
Regular readers know that the Texas Legislature eliminated funding for three TYC youth prisons in the current budget, but left it up to the TYC board (one of its last substantive decisions before its merger with the Juvenile Probation Commission) which facilities should be shuttered. A mayor from one of the potentially affected communities informs me via email that "Today is the day the TYC Board meets and allows each community to make one final pitch to the entire Board (each community gets 5 minutes face time). And tomorrow at their Board meeting, they will make the decision."
