By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO, California (Reuters) - Long criticized for keeping inmates in near-solitary conditions for years on end, California is developing reforms that would make it harder to send convicts to isolation-style units and offer a way out to those already placed there. The moves come amid ongoing controversy over California's security housing units, where inmates with ties to prison gangs are kept in poured concrete cells with severely restricted access to other people, in some cases for more than two decades. Relying on the units to control prison gangs was "an overreaction that then morphed into a regular practice that now needs to be re-designed." Conditions in the facilities, and the rules for who is placed in them, have prompted two hunger strikes by inmates in recent years, including one last summer that drew 30,000 participants at its peak and sparked promises from state lawmakers to seek reform. Under new rules proposed by the administration of Governor Jerry Brown, inmates will no longer be assigned to security housing units, or SHU, simply because they associate with gang members.
