Gov. Jerry Brown’s request for a 3-year delay in prison cap

On Monday night, law­yers for Gov. Jerry Brown told a pan­el of three fed­er­al judges the state stands ready to ship in­mates in­to private pris­ons to re­duce over­crowding, but would rather use part of that money to fund loc­al crime-re­duc­tion pro­grams in­stead. In ex­change, the gov­ernor asks the judges for a three-year delay to the 2010 or­der to re­duce pris­on crowding.
