California's governor cites the need to fund programs for children, the disabled and senior citizens, saying the cost cannot be justified.

Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday canceled construction of a $356-million death row at San Quentin prison, saying it would be "unconscionable" to spend so much on condemned inmates as the state is slashing budgets for education and other social services.
