Corsicana — State Rep. Byron Cook confirmed Monday that the Texas Juvenile Justice Department is delaying its decision on a staff recommendation to close the Corsicana State Home.

Cook said the decision was made Monday. It had been scheduled for a vote on July 26 by the full TJJD board. That vote is now on hold, Cook said.

We'll post more on this development later this afternoon, and in the Tuesday print edition.
