  1. I am researching the Voter Referendum on Cash Bail (SB10-2018) for a series of articles for the California Federation of Women Capitol Update. The series will result in CFRW taking a stand on the Referendum and I would like to provide the best rationale and evidence possible to support that position.
    I have talked with one bail bondsman in my home county, Humboldt, regarding his position and rationale for voting No, meaning that SB10 should be invalidated.
    For writing and analysis would be very helpful to have specific information from the California Bail Agents Association which states the organization’s position and its rationale. If possible, I would also like information about spokespeople whom I might contact for additional information that provides evidence of the effects of the law, particularly in counties which currently have or are experimenting in systems which minimize or eliminate cash bail using some kind of Pretrial Risk Assessment or Preliminary Assessment System. I would also like to know if your organization has a defined position on the constitutionality of eliminating bail, according to the US Constitution or the California Constitution (Section 12 “A person shall be released on bail by sufficient sureties, except for…Excessive bail may not be required…)
