WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Congressman Dave Loebsack (IA-02) and Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) urged the House Appropriations Committee to provide funding for the activation of Thomson Prison in their appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2014.
Loebsack has long pushed to activate funding for opening Thomson Prison. He has worked to push Chairman Wolf to include this funding in previous appropriations bills.
