Statement by Dr. Paul Song, executive chairman of the California-based, on Senator Darrell Steinberg’s Prison Plan:

“ and our 750,000 members stand against the Governor’s plan to throw $700 million down the black hole that is California’s broken prison system. There are smarter, more responsible alternatives. Senator Steinberg’s proposal provides the space to look at comprehensive long term solutions on sentencing, reduction of crime, rehabilitation, and overcrowding on a timeline that won’t bankrupt California.”
