This is the second of a two-part series on the state of the California state prison system and new legislation, signed by Governor Brown, that forces county jails to house thousands of prisoners that would have normally been kept in state level facilites.  Already cash-strapped county governments are scrambling to deal with both tne new influx of inmates to their jails and the ramifications of the new law on their budgets.  Solano County Sherrif Gary Stanton joins Ken and Beth on this show.  He will explain what the law entails and how it will affect the county both operationally and fiscally.  Our show is only a half-hour long so we will only be able to take a few callers on a first-come-first-served basis.  Don't miss your chance to voice your opinion on this very important topic.  CALL IN!!
