Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Assembly Speaker Karen Bass released the Assembly's version of the prisons cuts bill today. The Assembly is expected to take up the plan Monday, spokeswoman Shannon Murphy wrote in an e-mail.

As expected, several key elements of the Senate-passed plan have been eliminated, including the creation of a sentencing commission, the release of some inmates to electronic surveillance or alternative custody and changes to the prosecution standards for "wobbler" crimes, which can currently prosecuted either as misdemeanors or felonies.
