Gov. Brown's New Budget Has Little Impact on Realignment:  Andrew Edwards of the Daily Bulletin reports that Gov. Brown's Revised budget proposal will make few changes to current realignment policy. Under the new budget a county could exchange felons facing sentences of three years in county jail with prison inmates whose remaining terms were less than three years.   This is a weakened version of recently killed legislation that would have required offenders sentenced to more than three years to serve that time in state prison rather than a county jail. The proposal also allocates a small increase in funds for county probation departments.
