Prop 47, also known as “The Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act,”reduces the classification of most nonserious and nonviolent property and drug crimes from a felony to a misdemeanor. In reducing these offenses to simple misdemeanors, Prop 47 aims to reduce California’s prison population and save hundreds of millions of dollars. The money saved will be funneled back into K-12 schooprograms, victim services, and mental health and drug treatment programs.
