ST. CLOUD - The State Legislature has passed a $500 million bonding bill, with no money allocated for the St. Cloud prison.

The Department of Corrections spokesman John Schadl says they had requested $30 million for upgrades to the prisoner intake system.

Schadl says they also had plans to update the loading dock area, so trucks could drop-off their loads outside the prison walls.  He says they'll continue to make bonding money requests during future legislative sessions.

The St. Cloud Prison is a level four closed security institution, with a population of about 1,000 prisoners.  The facility was built in 1889.
