I received these files from the CA DOC today.  There is a 15 day comment period regarding the increase in restitution payments and administrative fees.  This is my review of the document:

Subject: Restitution 15 day renotice

I object to the wording "regardless of the source of such income" throughout this document.  In attaching to funds that are provided by family members the DOC is taking restitution payment from the family.  The logic is this:  family members send money to inmates to facilitate communication between the inmate and the family.  Therefore, family members are, in essence, paying for a service (maintaining contact with a family member).  The inmate is the person owing and responsible for the 
restitution payments ordered by the court; the family is not under court order to pay.  In using these monies to pay the inmate restitution, the DOC is extracting money from inmate families.  The majority of inmate families are lower income and can not afford to increase these monies by the 
designated percentages to cover restitution payments.

The DOC does not have the legislative authority to collect court-ordered restitution payments from any persons other than the inmates in your charge.  Therefore, money provided by inmate families must be exempted from restitution payments and administrative fees.

Way to go CA DOC!  The email address bounces-go figure.  The fax number is (916) 322-3842, resending by that method.
