A New York State Senator from the Hudson Valley says the 2013-2014 Senate budget resolution approved Monday provides some good news for his district. Democratic State Senator Terry Gipson says the budget resolution contains a few items for which he has been fighting. One is to keep the Beacon Correctional Facility, the state’s only female minimum-security prison, up and running.  Gipson says another recommendation included in the resolution is to keep open another facility in Dutchess County, the Red Hook Residential Center, a youth detention facility.
