BREAKING NEWS - New Budget Plan: Less Felonies, Less Inmates, Less Parole

The Chron reports on the Governor's plan for corrections cuts, which includes changing the definition of some offenses, charging wobblers as misdemeanors, moving undocumented immigrants to the hands of the Feds, and narrowing the scope of parole. This plan will reduce the CA prison population by 27,000 inmates, and is already generating much opposition from Republican politicians.

Stay tuned for more.
