Opposers of a proposed Alabama prison are bringing environmental and economic concerns to the governor's attention.
The group Block the Brierfield Prison, represented by Birmingham attorney Chris Christie, has sent a letter for Gov. Kay Ivey about how the 3,000-inmate prison will affect the taxpayers of Bibb County.
The letter said the project could hurt local water supply and that other possible environmental impacts need to be studied. Leasing prisons built by private companies was also questioned in the letter.
