Camp Gabriels expected to close this summer

Listen to this story
After more than two years of being on the chopping block, a minimum security prison in the Adirondacks is expected to close on July 1 under the budget agreement reached by legislative leaders and Governor Paterson over the weekend. Camp Gabriels, along with Camp Pharsalia in Chenango County and Camp McGregor in Saratoga County, will be closed if the Legislature adopts the proposed $131 billion state budget. State prison officials say the prisons have a declining inmate population and are no longer needed. Chris Knight reports.
