Proposition 47

California's Proposition 47 turned many non-violent felonies into misdemeanors.  A new study of the 2014 initiative finds it reduced incarceration without increasing crime - mostly.  Capital Public Radio's Ben Bradford reports.

California Voters will likely decide in November whether to abolish the death penalty or to streamline the process.  Proponents for two competing ballot initiatives met Tuesday for a hearing at the Capitol.  The sides debated whether the state's current broken system can be fixed.
