Inmate property authorization

Cali­for­nia pris­on of­fi­cials, an­ti­cip­at­ing the cur­rent strike, agreed in June to in­crease the prop­erty that in­mates in sol­it­ary con­fine­ment are al­lowed in their cells — un­lim­ited candy and in­stant soup, for ex­ample – with­in 6 cu­bic feet. Sep­ar­ately, the state also agreed to al­low in­mates held in isol­a­tion to have an elec­tric type­writer and put up to 1 cu­bic foot of leg­al books and pa­pers in­to stor­age.
