|Alabama seeks developers for 3 new men's prisons|
The Alabama Department of Corrections is looking for developers interested in building three men's prisons that the state would then lease from private owners.
News outlets report responses for the DOC's request for expressions of interest are due Wednesday.
The DOC says leasing the prisons may cost about $78 million annually.
The prisons would each hold more than 3,000 inmates; the most populated Alabama prison held less than 2,100 inmates in December.
