Editorial Stumps for Approval of Medical Parole Legislation
A Sacramento Bee editorial argues that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) should sign a bill (SB 1399), by Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), that "would grant medical parole to inmates who are permanently medicallyÂ incapacitated and unable to perform the basic activities of daily life." The editorial adds, "Caring for and guarding severely incapacitated felons costs the state tens of millions of dollars a year, money California cannot afford to waste."
