Would  limit adult probation  in CA to a maximum of one year for misdemeanor offenses and two years for felony offenses, except for offenses defined by law as violent felonies, or offenses that include a specific probation term within their provisions. Objective is to reduce  separation of children from their parents and guardians and to mitigate poverty caused by recidivism due to  minor parole violations.
