Two consulting firms put the price tag for replacing an aging prison near Green Bay at about 500-million dollars. 

The draft report just submitted says almost 30 percent of the century-old Green Bay Correctional Institution needs to be replaced.  When Republican Representative David Steffen proposed replacing the facility two years ago the cost was estimated at 350-million.  Wisconsin prisons are overcrowded and the facility in Allouez holds 300 more inmates than it was designed to contain.
