Gov. Jerry Brown said today that he is eliminating more than 400 positions at the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation headquarters, cuts he first suggested two weeks ago.

Brown’s office said the measure will reduce general fund spending by $30 million. Brown’s revised budget plan, released May 16, included the elimination of 5,500 positions statewide.

“This is a long overdue action to make CDCR more efficient while cutting costs,” Brown said in a prepared statement.

The measure will eliminate 32 executive-level jobs at Corrections and more than 100 management and supervisory positions, Brown’s office said. More than 1,000 headquarters positions, or about 25 percent, have been eliminated in the last 18 months, the office said.

  1. The #1 person to be laid off from CDCR should be Matthew Cate.

    He should have stepped down in disgrace following the Jaycee Lee Dugard/Philip Garrido debacle. But no, the legislators coughed up $20 million of your money to pay off Ms. Dugard to avert a costly civil suit and Cate is still on the job.

    Cate should be a kitchen c/o in a Level 1 fire camp.
