Hearings on Thomson sale could start in Dec.

November 28, 2009 (CHICAGO) The Thomson Correctional Center is one location being considered as the Obama administration looks to close the military-run detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and relocate terror detainees.

This week, Governor Quinn's administration filed its recommendation for closing Thomson.

State Senator Jeff Schoenberg of Evanston co-chairs a panel that reviews state-facility closings. He wants to begin the hearings by the end of December.
