Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Vice President of Policy Chuck DeVore will testify before California’s Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review on January 30, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time. The committee hearing, chaired by Senator Mark Leno, will focus on realignment in California. Chuck will present a clear description of successful Texas’ criminal justice reforms as a set of lessons learned that may be applied to California.

From 2004 – 2010 Chuck served in the California State Assembly, during which time he also authored a section of 2007’s AB 900 prison construction bill that calls for 4,000 new beds for drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
