1. CDCR: Total funding of $14.2 billion ($13.8 billion General Fund and $364.4 million other funds) in 2022-23. Over 65,000+ jobs. 
  2. Adult incarcerated population is expected to increase by 8,310 individuals between 2021-22 and 2022-23. This is mostly due to individuals sentenced to state prison who have been held in county jails due to the pandemic. 
    • The average daily parole population is projected to decrease by 5,306 to 42,963 in 2022-23, meaning less people are expected to be released on parole over the next year. 
  3. Continued emphasis on Norway Model of imprisonment
    • Valley State Prison will serve as a pilot for re‑envisioning and transforming the state’s correctional system to be less punitive. 
  4. Increased surveillance: 
    • $80.3 million General Fund and $7.6 million ongoing, to install fixed camera systems at ten additional institutions and deploy body-worn cameras at four additional institutions—including three high-security prisons and one female institution. 
    • $19.5 million General Fund in 2022-23, and $1.4 million ongoing, for CDCR to “procure new technology to support implementation of the new camera systems and to enable the Department to more effectively manage and store data and information.”
  5. Exaggerated fear and criminalization for theft and property crime
    • $356 million General Fund over three years, including $132 million in 2022-23, for local law enforcement efforts to crack down on organized retail theft and other crimes
    • Plays into legislative attempts to undermine Prop 47
