Despite the ongoing decline in incarceration, spending on state corrections remains high.
Under the Governor's proposed budget, combined funding for the CDCR and the Board of State and Community Corrections would be $12.1 billion in 2018-19 (the fiscal year that begins this coming July 1) - $2 billion higher than the 2012-13 level, after adjusting for inflation.
The Morality of Government Spending: Who Decides What Gets Funded?
BY BRIAN BIERY
Budgets are moral documents. As a society, we demonstrate our values by what we spend our money on. So when governments draft budgets they show what is important to bureaucrats and politicians, but what if their perspectives are not aligned with the public? And how do we insert what we value into the process?
Whole Person Care is a Medi-Cal 2020 waiver-funded program and an exciting five-year initiative that will provide comprehensive and coordinated services to the sickest, most vulnerable LA County Medi-Cal beneficiaries. Eleven innovative programs will bring together health and social service delivery entities across the County to deliver seamless, coordinated services to individuals who are homeless, justice-involved, or have serious mental illness or severe and/or persistent substance use disorder or medical issues.
We need letters of support for:
- AB 2438, Expediting the Records Clearing Process and
- SB 1298 Increasing Access to Employment Act.
