The "deal" is a token one, and has zero chance of being relied upon by the Court to issue a stay of its Order. Given that the Court has provided lawmakers and the Governor every opportunity to fix the problem -- and to date the Governor continues to make arbitrary parole reversals which aren't supported by the record of evidence, and further exacerbates the overcrowding crisis -- and California's credibility is shot. Beyond that, if the Governor were serious then he'd call a Special Session, which he hasn't because he knows lawmakers won't pass anything. Because everyone in the Capitol knows nothing will be done, that makes Senator Steinberg's 'proposal' meaningless, and of course we know the default if Steinberg's plan fails, is the Governor's original plan. The Court will see with through this Trojan Horse.
