Gov. Jerry Brown discusses a proposal to reduce California’s prison population, at a Capitol news conference in Sacramento, Calif., Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013. In response to a federal court order to reduce the state’s prison population, Brown announced a $315 million plan to send thousands of inmates to private prisons and to empty county jail cells to avoid what he and his supporters say would be a mass release of dangerous felons. Brown was joined by legislative leaders, including Assembly Speaker John Perez, D-Los Angeles, left, and representatives of law enforcement, local government officials, and victims rights advocates.
