California passed this in November 2016

Proposition 57 was a California ballot proposition, approved on the November 8, 2016 ballot. The Proposition allows parole consideration for nonviolent felons, changes policies on juvenile prosecution,[2] and authorizes sentence credits for rehabilitation, good behavior, and education. The passage and implementation of the proposition may allow the state to save tens of millions of dollars each year.

There were some who were critical of this since
Opponents of the Proposition argued that it would release potentially dangerous criminals due to improper classification of crimes as non-violent. [9]

“I drafted it myself,” Brown shot back in an interview that preceded the referendum.
