While the California system is bursting at its seams, Texas has closed three prisons. Both states have crime rates that are lower than they had been decades ago, but Texas’ rate is falling faster than national trends. Crime in California is edging up slightly and its prison population is growing. California pays twice what Texas pays per year to incarcerate an inmate.I know a way for CA to lower their prison population: Stop passing so many damn laws!

No crime for California to learn from Texas
An interesting comparison.
