UPDATE: On August 25, Governor Brown announced that negotiations on bail reform would continue throughout the fall, postponing passage of SB 10 until next year. He will be working on the legislation with Asm. Rob Bonta, Sen. Robert Hertzberg and Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye. Watch for further action!
46,000 Californians are sitting in county jail right now simply because they cannot make bail. While wealthy defendants can easily secure their own release, poor defendants cannot. SB 10 seeks to fix this broken bail system that penalizes the poor and does little to protect the public. Tell your Assembly Member to fix our broken bail system and vote YES on SB 10!
