California Lawmakers are rethinking Prop 47 to increase penalty for repeat shop lifters.

Originally voters voted in Prop 47 increasing the amount to $950.00 making it a misdemeanor.

When that happened the misdemeanor wasn’t counted as a crime and wasn’t reported as such making California crime statistics low.

Since the increase of theft over the holidays Lawmakers want to reduce the theft and shoplifting from $950.00 to $400.00 dollars and making it a felony.

This will have to be approved by voters.
