Mark Leno letter halts San Quentin bond sale

A letter from the state senator from San Francisco and Assemblyman Jared Huffman, D-San Rafael, resulted in state Treasurer Bill Lockyer pulling financing for the expansion of death row at San Quentin State Prison from a state bond sale. The letter outlined the illegality of moving forward with the sale of the bonds while there was litigation challenging the project. A Lockyer spokesman said the project was dropped from the bond list given the “legal uncertainty.”
