That is a must read for anyone who has interest in reform, even if this specific felony murder rule doesn't affect you. Which is the case for most of us. This shows what it takes to get reform done properly and should give everyone an appreciation of how much work and the quality of work these advocacy groups and the good legislators do.

This bill does not potentially impact all CDCR inmates or even close. Less than 1% in fact. Still I think it is as important as any reform we've seen. Somewhat surprised at the minimal level of debate we've seen about it. I suppose that owes to the small percent of people impacted.

I think that public debate might start heating up as this thing approaches home plate.
