Granholm Budget Proposal Includes Asset Sale

LANSING—Gov. Granholm’s new budget proposal includes the sale of state property to the private sector. The Western Wayne Correctional Facility near Plymouth will redistribute its prisoners to other facilities, and structures on the 127-acre property will likely be bulldozed to make way for the sale of the land to private investors. The move is expected to save the state $22 million annually, and generate a hefty one-time cash payment as well.
