Last month we told you that Governor O'Malley's administration will not spend a total of $100 million to build a 120-bed jail for youth who are charged as adults. Instead, state officials will spend up to $30 million to renovate an existing facility to house up to 60 of these young people. We applaud the tireless efforts of Baltimore's youth, community activists and OSI-Baltimore grantees who fought for three years to stop the construction of the new jail.
