The Legislature hereby finds and declares that the existing state of overcrowding in jails and court facilities in Orange County is so great as to significantly impede the administration of justice and create a situation wherein persons who are a danger to society are required to be released into that society for lack of adequate facilities to house them. The Legislature further finds and declares that it is in the public interest to create the Orange County Regional Justice Facilities Commission so that regional justice facility needs may be addressed in an expeditious and appropriate fashion on a countywide basis. The Legislature further finds and declares that it is in the public interest to allow the voters to approve a general tax for the general governmental purposes of the Orange County Regional Justice Facilities Commission.
