ABSTRACT
The article reports on the dispute between California Attorney General Jerry Brown and J. Clark Kelso, the court-appointed receiver in charge of the prison healthcare system, over the future of healthcare access for the state's incarcerated adults. One California inmate dies each week because of substandard healthcare, according to some estimates, and the prison population needs better access to care. Kelso proposed a plan to build 10,000 medical and mental-health beds at seven new hospitals across the state to address both problems, but Brown objected.
