Use the Budget for Prison Expansion? No Way!
Rumors are swirling that Governor Brown is going to try to use the state's fragile budget surplus to fund hundreds of millions of dollars in prison expansion.
This is the worst possible scenario not just for prison reform in California - but for our schools, our roads, our hospitals, and our social services. We absolutely cannot let this happen.
The only way to beat this is to get way out in front of it - if we do our job right, the proposal will never even see the light of day. So please tell your Assemblymember and State Senator now to pledge to vote against any new money for prison expansion, period.
