State Assembly members were in Chula Vista on Wednesday for a public hearing on the future spending priorities of California's prison system.

"We are spending now for 125,000 people about $13 billion," said Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco.

State lawmakers said they intend to spend even more, but want the money to go toward keeping people out of prison.
