Default Ab 3160

This new bill seeks to reduce barriers for people inside prison, when accessing rehabilitative programs and creates an equitable outcome for everyone who participates in programs.
AB 3160 will do this by:

-Reducing current barriers due to transfers, by instructing prisons to place incoming people on priority for placement in programming that is consistent with the programming they were participating in at the prison they were transferred from.

-Ensuring that programs will be offered even if facilities are on lockdown, and allow folks to earn milestone completion credits for work assignments.
Offering equal incentive for programming regardless of able bodiedness, age, or health.

-Creating a fair standard of programming by allowing everyone, regardless of age or health, a pathway to earn the same credits as people who volunteer in fire camps.

Default Problem

Whoever can get at the author of the bill, it needs to be amended to not attach Allow VIO's to be removed from inmates sooner than 7 years, maybr make it 3 to 5 years.

Currently anyone sentenced to CDCR for a violent felony automatically has to wait 7 years before the VIO can be removed and CDCR tries extremely hard to not remove it because it keeps people in longer.
