Governor Brown Issues Statement on Senate Democrats' Prison Plan


8-28-2013

SACRAMENTO – Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today issued the following statement in response to the Senate Democrats’ prison plan:

"It would not be responsible to turn over California’s criminal justice policy to inmate lawyers who are not accountable to the people.

My plan avoids early releases of thousands of prisoners and lays the foundation for longer-term changes, and that’s why local officials and law enforcement support it."
