The debate over California's proposes prison and sentencing reforms are fascinating, and both national and local media are providing this on-going story the considerable coverage it merits.  Here are some of the newest pieces I have noticed today:

  • From CNN here, "California bill would free more than 27,000 inmates"
  • From the Christian Science Monitor here, "Calif. lawmakers fight Schwarzenegger over crowded prisons"
