Sacramento - Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) joined the Governor and other legislative leaders for a brief news conference in the State Capitol to announce an agreement on prison legislation. Speaker Pérez said, “The legislation is modeled first and foremost on the governor’s proposal to avoid any release of prisoners and fully comply with the court order. We then modified the legislation to create opportunities for us to address any changes in the court order. There are two elements to modification--one could be extension and the other should be a reduction in the number of bodies they are asking us to find solutions for.” Here’s more from the Speaker in this Assembly Access video.
