Bill to fund Bucks Harbor prison moves forward

On Thursday, Oct. 26 a 10-member panel of legislative leaders allowed a bill to keep Downeast Correctional Facility (DCF) in Bucks Harbor open an extra 18 months to move forward in January. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Will Tuell (R-East Machias), would provide additional funding to the beleaguered prison while policymakers develop a long term solution.
