CA to Spend $315 Million on 'Incarceration Binge' if Courts Reject Request for Three Year Delay on Prison Population Reduction
The key to the Senate Democrats' plans to get real reform in California's corrections system was a three year delay on the court ordered return to 137.5 percent of prison capacity. Gov. Brown has now gone ahead and asked the court for the delay. If it's rejected, the administration would spend $315 million this fiscal year to house the inmates in private prisons and county jails instead of turning them loose.
