Proposition 25: Replace Cash Bail with Risk Assessments Referendum

Position: No position

The Libertarian Party of California takes no position on Proposition 25. While the cash bail system that was imposed by California within the past couple of years is problematic, particularly with its disproportionately negative impact on the poor, we don’t know that Proposition 25 would solve this issue. Leaving risk assessments to a legion of unelected bureaucrats with no accountability in place could result in new and even worse problems, and a greater fiscal drain on taxpayers. As such, we recognize that there are good faith arguments on both sides of this issue, and thus ask that Californians vote their conscience.
