Among other things this money would lease a now-empty prison (I believe this is the old INS detention facility near Victorville) and staff it with state civil service workers. It would also place prisoners in a CCA facility in SoCal, which would be “run like a state prison facility” whatever that means. These moves would gain the state 2,400 beds in a very short period of time.
The plan would also lengthen and enlarge the inmate tourist program. [Transferring inmates to out-of-state, private prisons-ED]
