Background:  Assemblyman Mark Stone has introduced AB 1512 to extend by 5 years, the existing provision that allows counties to transfer inmates from one county jail to another to ease overcrowding.   We, our prison reform activist group, think this is another stop-gap measure that allows our leaders to delay implementing meaningful reforms to lower our jail population.
