The question is why — with more than one source indicating that there is sufficient room at the current location — are the Legislature, the governor and especially Draper City so focused on relocating the prison to some other place?

The obvious answer must surely be evident to most everyone. If the prison is not moved, the land developers and their friends in government will not have the opportunity, at great cost to taxpayers, of making huge profit in the redevelopment of the site. If some legislators had spent as much time on this as they did on not resolving the Medicare issues for Utah, perhaps both issues could have been solved.
