__________________________________________________ ______________________
ISOR – Two For One Credit October 20, 2003 Page 1
INITIAL STATEMENT OF REASONS
The California Department of Corrections (CDC) proposes amendments to
Sections 3043.5, 3043.6, and 3044 of the California Code of Regulations,
Title 15, to implement provisions of recent legislation regarding work time credits
for inmates.
Assembly Bill (AB) 3000, 2001-2002 Session, added Penal Code (PC)
Section 2933.3, which allows inmates eligible to earn one day of worktime credit
for every one day of service who are assigned to a conservation camp
by the CDC, to instead earn two days of worktime credit for every one
day of service. This enhanced worktime credit applies to service performed
after January 1, 2003. These regulations will bring the Department into
compliance with the provisions of AB 3000.
The Department must determine that no alternative considered would be more
effective in carrying out the purpose of this action or would be as effective and
less burdensome to affected private persons than the action proposed.
Subsection 3043.5(e) is amended to provide for a process to determine an
effective date in which inmates, who are injured on-the-job and assigned to Work
Group F, shall revert to Work Group A-1 in the event the on-the-job injury
excludes the inmate from conservation camp assignment. This is necessary to
avoid any confusion and ensure that the two for one credit earning, pursuant to
PC Section 2933.3, applies only to those eligible inmates who are able to
perform the duties in a conservation camp assignment.
Subsection 3043.6(a)(1) is amended to clarify and include in the definition of a
non-adverse transfer, the movement of an inmate from a non-secure camp or
minimum support facility to a higher security level due to non-adverse reasons.
Non-adverse is any reason that an inmate’s placement is effected but was not
caused by an action of the inmate. Possible reasons could include, but are not
limited to, medical appointments and out to court. This clarification is necessary
to avoid penalizing an inmate with the possible classification to an incorrect work
group for a non-adverse transfer.
Subsection 3043.6(a)(2) is amended to provide that inmates assigned to Work
Group F shall revert to Work Group A-1 in the event a non-adverse transfer
results in removal from a conservation camp assignment. Pursuant to
PC Section 2933.3, this is necessary to ensure that the two for one credit
earning applies to eligible inmates in a conservation camp assignment.
Subsection 3043.6(c)(1) is amended to clarify the definition of an adverse
transfer. The definition as provided in Section 3375(f)(1) pertains to
classification and defines an adverse effect. This clarification is necessary as an
inmate can have an adverse effect but it does not necessarily result in an
adverse transfer.

__________________________________________________ ______________________
ISOR – Two For One Credit October 20, 2003 Page 2
Subsection 3043.6(c)(2) is amended to provide that if an inmate is removed
from a program for adverse reasons and is subsequently exonerated of charges,
the credit earning status of the inmate shall be reinstated and designated back to
the level prior to removal from assignment. This is necessary to avoid penalizing
an inmate for an adverse transfer that is subsequently found not to be their fault.
Existing subsection 3043.6(c)(2) is renumbered to 3043.6(c)(3) and
amended to include Work Group F inmates in the description of those inmates
that will be reclassified to Work Group A-2 as the result of an adverse transfer.
Pursuant to PC Section 2933.3, this is necessary to ensure that the correct work
group status and the two for one credit earning are applied to those eligible
inmates in conservation camp placement.
Existing subsection 3043.6(c)(3) is renumbered to new subsection
3043.6(c)(4).
Subsection 3043.6(f) is amended to clarify and provide that with the exception
of inmates assigned to Work Group F, inmates approved for a Community
Correctional Center (CCC) program shall retain their current work group status
while en route to a CCC program. This clarification clears up the confusion that
the inmate shall retain, not regain their current work group status. Also provided
is that inmates assigned to Work Group F shall revert to Work Group A-1
effective the date removed from camp assignment. This is necessary to ensure
that the two for one credit earning is only applied to those eligible inmates in a
conservation camp assignment.
Subsection 3044(b)(1) is amended to bring the Department into compliance
with PC Section 2933.3, and provide for the establishment of new Work Group F
as the inmate work group for a full time conservation camp assignment. This will
allow those inmates that are eligible to earn PC Section 2933 worktime credits to
now be awarded two days credit for each day of qualifying performance.
Existing subsections 3044(b)(1), (b)(2), (b)(3), (b)(4), (b)(5), (b)(6), and (b)(7)
are renumbered to 3044(b)(2), (b)(3), (b)(4), (b)(5), (b)(6), (b)(7), and (b)(8)
respectively and are unchanged.

Default "Two for One"

An excellent article and very good information here. I see this passing without difficulty. Actually, I kind of hope folks show up at the hearings and ask that the "Two for One" credit earning status be extended to all ORWD inmates as well. There are many inmates who are approved for and work in those programs, who should enjoy equal benefit.

I also noticed something very, very interesting and I wonder if anyone else caught it! There was a requirement that a study be done on the impact of the release of all these inmates as a result of this new credit earning status. I wonder why?

Seems like someone is concerned that if too many inmates were released back into the community, it might have an impact on local business through increased job competition in the work force! Actually, if many thousands of inmates were infact released back into the workforce too soon, it probably would have an effect on everyone else's ability to find a job since there clearly would be increased competition!

It's just sad that our society would even "want" to regulate through a "controlled flow" just how many inmates are in fact released. Could it be that certain "interests" actually have a concern in "NOT" seeing too many inmates released at once?

Makes ya wonder huh?

I would be most interested in "Boomslang's" comments on this observation. I bet they are deep!

I very much enjoyed this post . . . thank you very much!

ORWD stands for Off-Reservation Work Detail. It is simply a highly trusted unique catagory of inmates who are allowed to venture outside the prison walls and work within the community.

Cobra,

"Lifers" - Is there any work/educations credits for those "lifers" who are first time offenders - with the possibility of parole and who crime did not cause any bodily harm? I do know there are lifers - with no parole as well. Also have you heard that some lifers time will be reduce from doing 85% to 50%? What a blessing that would be!

Thanks. Lou
