|Budget Issue:||Additional funding to address "structural shortfall" in CDCR’s budget|
|Program:||Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation|
|Finding or Recommendation:||Require the administration to revise its proposal to provide a $395 million General Fund augmentation to CDCR for past funding shortfalls to include (1) a more accurate accounting of CDCR's budget imbalances, (2) specific measures to reduce costs, and (3) specific plans for achieving separate unallocated reductions in personnel costs and inmate health care. Also recommend the Legislature exert stronger oversight of CDCR's budget.|
