May 04, 2013

Gov. Jerry Brown's new proposal to ease prison crowding, which falls short of court-ordered population limits, would:

Move 1,722 inmates to housing now being built

Lease 1,600 beds in county jails

Send 1,300 inmates to state fire camps

Free 650 inmates who are elderly, frail or earn credit for good conduct.

Also, the governor would move 1,200 inmates to space being negotiated with various public and private entities.
