Abstract:     
California's 2011 corrections realignment marked a dramatic shift in the way the state apportions felon management responsibilities between its central government and its local governments (in particular its 58 counties). This article offers a brief summation of the corrections realignment legislation. It discusses the dual causes of the realignment as well as the legislation's projected consequences. This article also provides appendices summarizing the legislation's key statutory changes.
