    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, November 18, 2010, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on California’s corrections system. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    This study is a follow-up from a 2005 Little Hoover Commission report, Reconstructing Government: A Review of the Governor’s Reorganization Plan Reforming California’s Youth and Adult Correctional Agency. That year, the Commission reviewed Governor Schwarzenegger’s reorganization plan on corrections programs and recommended the Legislature allow the proposal to go into effect. As part of that recommendation, the Commission committed itself to monitoring the progress of California’s corrections programs. The November 18 hearing stems from that commitment and will provide an opportunity to update the Commission on the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

    The Commission will hear from the secretary of the department; a former secretary and undersecretary of the department; the chief probation officer for the city and county of San Francisco, who also is former corrections department chief financial officer and associate director of female offender programs and services; the president of the California Correctional Peace Officers Association; representatives of Service Employees International Union Local 1000; and the court-appointed receiver for California Prison Healthcare Services.

    The hearing will include a one-hour break for the Commission’s business meeting, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., then will reconvene.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    All public notices for meetings are on the Commission’s Web site, If you need reasonable accommodation due to a disability, please contact Executive Director Stuart Drown at (916) 445-2125 or by Thursday, November 11, 2010.
