Gains from trade?

Michigan offers to take California inmates.


Empty Michigan prisons could become home to hundreds of California inmates if a deal can be struck.
Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm sent a letter Monday to California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger formally offering space for some of the inmates California is running out of room to house to Michigan.
Michigan plans to close two prisons by the end of September. Michigan could save the jobs of about half of the 1,000 prison guards it plans to lay off by Oct. 1 if California accepts the offer.
