Really not much. None of the members of the County Planning Commission knew much about private prisons, and at the time the conditions were discussed the public was not allowed to speak to correct some of the blatant lies Toreson presented to them. Very conveniently, Toresons attorney was the last one to speak, and he basically told the commission that they would be sued if they denied the request, but that they really could not be held liable later if they approved it and it failed. Don't underestimate Toreson. This is his last hurrah, and he is going all in.

The conditions were basically to give him 18 months, and to reduce the number of inmates to 1500, which is still on the high end of existing prisons. The representative from Nellis requested a condition to be put in that they can not complain about noise etc. from the war games later, and that they must take adequate measures to noise-proof the facility.
