The California Catholic Conference of Bishops issued a statement today in support of Proposition 57 – The Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act. This initiative on the November ballot refocuses our criminal justice system to include rehabilitation, treatment and education programs. Proposition 57 is a balanced approach that advances the well-being of all the residents and communities in our state.
The Bishops also have announced support of Proposition 62 to repeal the death penalty. They oppose Proposition 66 that expedites the application of the death penalty.
