Default Audit faults CA prison system for failing to develop system to track rising costs

Audit faults California prison system for failing to develop system to track rising costs
Denis C. Theriault, Mercury News, 09/08/2009

SACRAMENTO — As the debate grinds on in the Legislature about how best to slice $1.2 billion from California's crowded prison system, a scathing new audit faults the Corrections Department for its skyrocketing costs and for not doing enough to track the money it spends....

There have been a lot of republican legislators that keep insisting, quite vocally, that the 3 strikes law has barely made a dent in the state's budget crisis. This article has actual facts (gathered from the State Auditor's Dept.) that it has, and that it will continue to do so indefinitely. This would be a great piece to bring to your legislators attention!

WOW - a quarter of our state prisoners were sentenced under 3 strikes?! I knew it was high, but that's amazing. (This of course includes 2nd strikers)
