Local lawmakers say Richmond is making a bad situation worse.
All signs indicate the Staunton Correctional Center will close in December.
But, no official word has been passed on to employees or legislators.
Delegate Chris Saxman (R) 20th District, says state officials are keeping everyone in the dark. "They have not told us anything., ..there has been no information on the fate of the Staunton Correctional Facility."
Saxman and other lawmakers will form a job placement system sometime next week for the Correctional center employees.
