The last inmates at the “supermax” prison in Tamms, Illinois are now moved out.  Governor Pat Quinn wants to close it down to save money.

The state has offered to sell the $70 million facility to the federal government, but there are no plans for its future as of yet. Tamms was a nearly 15-year experiment with a super maximum security prison, which advocates believe the state still needs.
