Harris to cut 102 Department of Justice positions

Attorney General Kamala Harris says she will lay off 102 Department of Justice agents and 21 civilian employees next year because of budget cuts.

That's about half the 203 agents who originally were expected to lose their jobs. However, the department is still ending its involvement in two-thirds of California's 52 drug-and-gang fighting task forces next year, despite the lower layoff numbers.
