Judge considers blocking California governor's prison plan

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, February 24, 2016

A judge is set to consider Wednesday whether to block Gov. Jerry Brown's proposed ballot initiative to reduce California's prison population.

State prosecutors want Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Shelleyanne Chang to prevent Attorney General Kamala Harris from issuing the title and summary for a proposal that they say bypassed the normal filing process.

That would force Brown and his supporters to file a new initiative instead of amending an existing proposal. It would delay when supporters can begin collecting the signatures necessary to put the measure before voters in November.
