Proposal to reduce state prison population by 23,000

Posted: Updated:
State prison officials have unveiled a plan to reduce the inmate population by 23,000 over the next two years.

The proposal was submitted Friday to a panel of federal judges.

Last month, the state was ordered to reduce the inmate population by 40,000 in two years.

The move is intended to make delivery of medical and mental care more manageable and effective.
