Hawaii to house prisoners in Arizona during construction

HONOLULU (AP) – The government of Hawaii has applied for additional funds to house inmates on the mainland while continuing to upgrade in a state prison.

Honolulu's Star Advertiser said Sunday that Governor David Ige's government has requested an additional $ 4.3 million as contractors complete an overhaul of the electronic locks and video surveillance systems at the Halawa Correctional Facility on Oahu.

Officials say the request means that the government has now asked the legislature for permission to spend a total of $ 18.7 million on the detention of prisoners in Arizona while the work continues.

According to official data, the work on the Halawa project 2017 should be completed.

Construction was initially estimated at $ 9.75 million, according to the State Department of Accounting and General Services, but the contract has been adjusted to more than $ 12.3 million.
