California moves more prisoners out of state

November 2, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
California is taking additional steps to ease prison overcrowding. Monday, the Department of Corrections announced that it will soon send an additional 2,300 inmates to prisons outside the state.

The move will bring the number of inmates relocated out of California to more than 10,000 since 2006.

California is under a federal court order to reduce its prison population by 40,000 within two years.

Last month, a three judge panel rejected the Schwarzenegger administration's latest plan to ease overcrowding.
