    much older prisons include:

    California Institution for Women (CIW)
    California Institution for Men (CIM)
    Correctional Training Facility (CTF)
    San Quentin State Prison (SQ)
    Folsom State Prison (FSP)

    democrat assembly member Rudy Salas has 4 prisons in his domain, as does republican senator Tom Berryhill

    The big problem is, those prisons are mostly in the boondocks, where they supply the majority of the well paying jobs.  It will be impossible to address closing those prisons without addressing that issue.
