SACRAMENTO, CA – Californians United for a Responsible Budget (CURB) released a statement Tuesday responding to Governor Newsom’s recent revisions to the 2022-2023 state budget.

CURB is calling for Newsom to make a firm commitment to the closure of more state prisons as California sees its number of incarcerated individuals decreasing. CURB advocates wish to see the money saved from the closure of these prisons put towards community investments.
