Transcript: California State Association of Counties’ statement on the $315 million plan to expand prison capacity

Partial transcript of remarks by David Finigan, President of the California State Association of Counties, on expanding prison capacity to comply with the federal court order to reduce prison overcrowding. The press conference was held on Aug. 27, 2013:

At CSAC [California State Association of Counties], our partnership with the state on public safety is strong.

We must find both short-term and long-term solutions to this issue.

Releasing additional offenders back into our community in order to satisfy a court order is not the answer.

We agree with the governor that increasing the capacity is the best available short-term solution.
