Brown's prison debacle passes Assembly Budget Hearing
Unfortunately, we were not able to stop Brown's plan in the Assembly hearing. It's on a fast track through the legislature, and it could come up for a vote in the Assembly as early as today or next week.

If you live in California, please take a moment to call your Assemblymember and ask them to vote NO. Here's a way to look up their contact info:
And take a look at this great 1 minute video from Beyond Bars that breaks down how bad Brown's plan really is.
