Virginia's prisons are housing more inmates from Delaware.
150 Delaware prisoners were transferred to the Greensville Correctional Center in Jarratt Saturday.
That puts the overall number of Delaware inmates at 300.
Virginia has plenty of space to house prisoners thanks, in part, to prisons built during George Allen's administration.

Delaware's prisons, meantime, are overcrowded. [45E-Police-Foundation]
