Yesterday, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger asked a “panel of federal judges to delay their order that the state produce a plan to reduce prison crowding, saying he would take the issue to the U.S. Supreme Court if they did not grant the request.”

The Senate recently passed a plan to reduce the inmate population. The plan included “home detention for some inmates, reduced parole supervision for low-level offenders and some sentencing reductions.”
But earlier this week, the Assembly passed a scaled-down version Monday. The revision must be approved by the Senate before going to the Governor. The LA Times reported that “so far there is no sign of compromise between the two houses.”
