I had to wait for the dust to settle, and for the listed on line published tally of votes from yesterdays' close call in the California Senate. Unfortunately, the swing voters did not heed our voices and SB-1132, Holly Mitchell's anti-fracking bill was killed on the CA senate floor on 5/29/14. The good news? We got much farther this year than last year. Also, more counties and cities in California have banned fracking and are continuing to do so. Recent surveys show two thirds or close to 65% of Californians want fracking banned. We are ever closer every year. As you read on, I will list my suggestions for the future.

>‘Kill switch’ smartphone bill dead on arrival in California Senate
An absurd new bill in the California Senate would tax us for every mile we drive.
California Senate does about face; “Kill switch” bill approved After revising the cell phone kill-switch bill that was rejected at the end of April, it appears that the California Senate has approved the controversial bill. The key changes made were items like giving the carriers a six-month extension to the deadline for compliance and to clarify that tablets are not included in the rules. This comes on the heels of the announcement just last month that carriers and manufacturers have agreed on the standard to be implemented on all devices manufactured after July 2015. In this bill, there are four main components to the kill switch: Software must make it impossible to use the device after it has been lost or stolen; and cannot be overcome by forcing a hard reset; Only the owner can reconnect it to a network; It covers any smartphone sold in California manufactured after July 1 of next year; Manufacturers will be fined $2,500 per-device if they sell smartphones without the kill switch installed What is ...

AP: California Senate erases websites of 3 lawmakers
There is a reason that conservatives and right-libertarians generally distrust the Mainstream Media. Professional Progressives like Jon Stewart remark snidely that "reality has a liberal bias", but all we see is selective journalism. Take for example the case of Leland Yee. The apparently dishonorable Mr Yee is a high ranking Democrat in the California State Senate. Being a prominent Democrat from California, his gun politics can safely be called prohibitionist. He has been accused of helping Chinese Triad and Philippine Muslim insurgent groups smuggle machine guns and rocket launchers INTO the United States. The California Senate suspended him on the basis of these allegations. ABCnews.com and cbsnews.com have a story about it. NBC doesn't. Searching for 'Leland Yee' on CNN.com brings up nothing recent. Googling MSNBC and Leland Yee brings up a Washingon Times article which mentions both Rachel Maddow and Yee, but not a MSNBC story about the investigation, the indictment, or the suspension. Apparently th ...

PARTY OF CROOKS….The California Senate Dem supermajority is now threatened because three Senate Dems face charges. Federal law enforcement officials arrested two public officials in California and North Carolina and raided the office of a New York state senator in connection with separate corruption investigations on Wednesday. Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon (D) was arrested Wednesday and charged with theft and bribery after an FBI sting operation, the U.S. Attorney’s office said. Derrick Smith was indicted in 2012 on corruption charges. He pleaded not guilty in federal court to taking a $7,000 bribe in exchange for recommending a state grant to help a daycare center. He was expelled from the House but won re-election in 2012 pending his trial. As an incumbent, he had the backing of Democratic party officials in this year’s primary.

California Senate Approves Package of Gun Control Bills by Dylan Polk | June 3, 2013 17 60 California gun legislation California Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, second from left, discusses a package of proposed gun control legislation at a Feb. 7 news conference in Sacramento, Calif. (Rich Pedroncelli/The Associated Press) California has never been known as a haven for gun owners and outdoorsmen, and it looks like the Golden State’s reputation is about to be tarnished even more. On Wednesday, the California Senate approved a package of seven gun control bills by a 22-14 vote, the latest wave of anti-gun legislation introduced in direct response to the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn. Among these is SB 53, a bill that would require a background check for anyone purchasing ammunition. In addition, buyers would need to submit their information and a $50 fee to the California Department of Justice, which would keep a record of “qualified” buyers. Buyers would then need to present a driver’s ...

California Senate passes several gun bills By the Associated PressAssociated Press Posted: 05/30/2013 01:01:29 AM PDT SACRAMENTO (AP) -- Invoking the image of recent mass shootings, Democrats in the state Legislature on Wednesday passed a series of firearms bills designed to reduce the chances for widespread carnage even as opponents warned that the measures would not keep weapons from those intent on committing horrific crimes. Among other changes, the bills that passed between the Senate and the Assembly would expand the list of people who are prohibited from owning firearms, require permits and a fee when buying ammunition, and ban semi-automatic rifles with detachable ammunition magazines. State Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, who pushed the ban on detachable magazines, said the bills would close loopholes in existing laws, keep firearms away from dangerous people and strengthen requirements for gun ownership. He said banning rifles that can be reloaded quickly with detachable magazines .. ...
BREAKING: California Senate approves 8 gun control bills, including ammo registry (VIDEO) 5/29/13 | by S.H. Blannelberry 155 11.3K Although it can’t be positively confirmed, though maybe it’s just self-evident, a majority of state senators in the Golden State are itching to push through their pro-gun control agenda, approving at least seven bills on Wednesday that further restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners, including one bill that would set up an ammo registry. That’s correct, under Senate Bill 53, responsible gun owners would be required to submit personal information to the state, undergo a background check and pay a $50 fee before being allowed to buy ammunition. Their information would be stored in a state database controlled by the Justice Department and the individual would have to present photo ID at a gun store upon making an ammo purchase. Additionally, gun dealers and ammo vendors would be required to obtain special permits to sell ammunition. Those gun owners or gun dealers/a . ...

Not only did Assemblyman Alejo graciously accept the invitation of stage director Bernardo Bernardo to come as a special guest to a performance of Lonnie Carter's THE ROMANCE OF MAGNO RUBIO-- he also presented the cast and production staff with a copy of ACR 74.

his Just In from the AMA: California lawmaker withdraws bill that would have restricted lane-splitting by motorcyclists PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The sponsor of a California Senate bill that would have restricted the current practice of lane-splitting by motorcyclists will withdraw the bill from consideration, the American Motorcyclist Association reports. Lane-splitting by motorcyclists in California is recognized by the California Highway Patrol and helps ease traffic flow. An aide to state Sen. Jim Beall (D-San Jose), who sponsored S.B. 350, confirmed in an email to the AMA Tuesday afternoon that the bill would be withdrawn, pending the results of a University of California-Berkeley safety study expected later this year. The bill, introduced Feb. 20, would have allowed lane-splitting only in certain instances: on divided highways with three or more lanes of travel in the same direction, only when traffic is congested and only at "a safe" speed. Nick Haris, AMA western states representative, noted that lane ...

The repercussions are far-reaching; if a boy perceives himself as a girl, the organization would be forced to allow him to play on a girls' sports team, among other things. What are your thoughts?

President Barack Obama has nominated Sen. John Kerry as his next secretary of state, saying Kerry's entire life "has prepared him for this role." If confirmed, the Massachusetts Democrat would succeed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in Obama's second-term Cabinet. Clinton did not attend the Roosevelt Room announcement. She's recovering from a concussion sustained in a fall. Obama said Kerry's political career and service has established him as a respected American voice around the globe. Obama said Kerry will not need on-the-job training. Kerry has served as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and is a decorated Vietnam veteran who was critical of the war effort when he returned home to the U.S. He has represented Massachusetts in the Senate since 1985.
Yesterday, California Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (author of prop 63) introduced a National Proposal to Enhance Mental Health Services. He asked the federal government to match (dollar for dollar) any money a state puts towards mental health services. He also asked that California’s prop 63 be used as a model for other states to adopt in addressing mental health in their communities. See the related article below and go to the website to view an edited version of the press conference. A colleague, Dr. Taisha Caldwell, representing the University of California Office of the President, spoke during this press conference about the mental health initiatives being implemented on UC campuses across the state. This is the work I do everyday and has been a wonderfully rewarding experience, so far! NS :)

California Senate paves way for self-driving cars with unanimous vote
Diana and I were witness this morning to an impressive array of support for our friend Fran Pavley for re-election to the California Senate. Six of her Senate colleagues were on hand to canvas on her behalf including President Pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg, Carol Liu and Kevin de Leon. The new 27th Senate District includes Moorpark, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Malibu and the western San Fernando Valley.
No matter your party affiliation, this should bother you: Senator Dianne Feinstein will not debate her opponent, Elizabeth Emken, in this year's California Senate race. The Senator is ahead in the polls and is taking her projected victory in November for granted. She’s taking your vote for granted. That isn't right. Tell her there needs to be a debate. It’s the best way for the best ideas to get the attention they so desperately need.
Vote Elizabeth Emken for California Senate... End the reign of Diane Feinstein who wont even face her constituents anymore and feels no need to campaign
Libyagate vs Watergate I well remember Watergate. President Richard (Tricky *** Nixon had his boyZ (most notably G. Gordon Liddy, John Ehrlichmann, Charles Colson, John Dean and about 50 others to greater or lessor degrees) coverup a political-intel breakin at DNC offices at the Watergate Hotel. More than thirty White House staff and other administration figures were tried, many found guilty and imprisoned. Nixon resigned in disgrace. Helen Gahagan Douglas, California socialite and later congresswoman first called Nixion "Tricky *** during his 1950 run for California Senate seat because of his alleged use of dirty tricks during the campaign. The name took on a new life after Watergate. I remember this, what a hullabaloo in the media, for a long time. To this day I still think of Richard Nixon as "Tricky *** . A burglary where the president had a somewhat remote connection brought down his administration. The recent Libyan scandal is much worse: People died, the US thrown in to a geo-political crisis .. ...

There is a bill on CA Governor Brown’s desk right now that would once again enable the media to interview specific California inmates in person. AB 1270 has been passed by the California Senate, and is awaiting the Governor’s signature. He has until the end of September to sign the bill. The bill’s sponsor, Assembly member Tom Ammiano, had this to say concerning the bill: “We’re not just worried about reporters. The lack of good information is also a danger to the prisoners, the employees and the public at large. It was under these closed-door conditions that prison health conditions deteriorated to the point that the courts stepped in. When it comes to prisons, what we don’t know can really hurt us.” We have noticed a few false reports that the bill has already been signed. We have contacted Mr. Ammiano’s office and confirmed that the bill is still awaiting the Governor’s signature. You can encourage the Governor to sign this bill by writing/calling/emailing his office to voice yo ...

The Sacramento Bee published a lengthy article recently about the proliferation of special committees in the California Senate that rarely, if ever, meet, just as rarely produce worthwhile research, and appear to exist mainly to give senators extra, off-the-books staff.
California Farmworker Safety Bills As farmers endure some of the worst heat in decades, California legislators consider two important bills that safeguard farmworker health and safety in scorching working conditions. During the summer, farmworkers in the Central Valley routinely work in upwards of 100ºF heat, and safety inspections are rarely conducted. The state adopted heat-related safety regulations in 2005, but at least 14 farmworkers have since died due to heat illness. On Tuesday, the California Senate passed the Humane Treatment for Farm Workers Act (AB 2676), which would make violation of shade and water regulations a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment and fines. Next Monday, the Farm Worker Safety Act (AB 2346) is expected to hit the Senate floor. This bill would impose stricter requirements for farm employers to provide adequate shade and drinking water, mandate stronger penalties for violations, and empower farmworkers to take delinquent employers to court. As the San Francisco Chronicle w ...

Warning: SB 249 is California's Worst Gun Confiscation Threat in 20 Years! Posted on August 3, 2012 Contact your California state Legislator TODAY! Senator Leland Yee of San Francisco now trying to ban and confiscate more so-called "assault weapons." Originally, Senate Bill 249 was a quiet agriculture bill that passed in the California Senate back in May. With sneaky back-door tactics, Senator Yee turned the bill into a gun ban monster. SB 249, as amended, would make a small but profound change to the definition of what constitutes a detachable magazine for a semiautomatic firearm. By doing so, hundreds of thousands of semi-automatic rifles, which were legally sold in California over the last decade, would become illegal on July 1, 2013. The existing definition of detachable magazine was used by Governor Brown's administration for the four years he served as Attorney General. Senator Yee's bill has no provisions to allow permitting, licensing or reimbursement for the loss of valuable property. Worse yet, ...

What do you think of the California Senate passing the new "Trust Act" or "anti-Arizona profiling law" as some media outlets are calling it? - Even with our problems here, I'm still quite proud to be in a state that still tries more often than naught to be a true leader for as many of its people as possible. We've still got a lot of issues to tackle (hint - education) but this is a positive step. And this is a state where innovation still happens all the time. It's a great place to be.

Fresno, CA – Mayor Ashley Swearengin today issued the following statement after the California Senate passed legislation authorizing funding for the state's high-speed rail project: “This is an historic day for Fresno. A lack of transportation infrastructure has always been one of Fresno's greatest challenges to overcoming our biggest gaps, and high-speed rail closes that gap.“With high-speed rail, the rest of California can easily access Fresno, and Fresno can easily access the other major urban areas of the state. This is great news for our economy, both in the immediate term and in the long run.”

Today the California Senate gave the citizens the finger and approved the choo-choo train to nowhere from Madeira to Bakersfield. The teamsters and the other unions are ecstatic. At a time when the state is bankrupt and the politicians are hectoring the voters to give them more tax money, this is absolute insanity.
Today, by a vote of 24-11, the California Senate passed Assembly Joint Resolution 22 calling on Congress to amend the Constitution to overturn the Supreme Court's disastrous decision in Citizens United v. FEC. Congratulations and THANK YOU -- thousands of California PFAW supporters took action to make today's victory a reality and your efforts made a huge difference. With today's passage of AJR 22, the California state legislature joins those of five other states and 30 California localities that have passed similar resolutions to help get the corrupting influence of unlimited corporate and special interest money out of elections. Assemblymember Bob Wieckowski, who introduced AJR 22, said, "Today's vote sends a clear message that California rejects this misguided ruling made by the conservative activists on the Supreme Court." We have a long way to go, but today's vote marks a pivotal moment in our movement to amend the Constitution and end the Citizens United era of Super PACs. The endorsement of our eff ...

Monday, the California Senate will vote on Senate Bill 1221, which would ban using hounds for bear and bobcat hunting. Hunting with dogs is an accepted and preferred method of controlling black bear populations. The bill is sponsored by the anti-hunting lobby and unless Senators hear from California sportsmen and women, this bill will pass. The anti-hunting groups have targeted hunting with dogs in California because hunters came to the defense of Fish and Game Commissioner Dan Richards, who was targeted go going on a legal mountain lion hunt in Idaho. Anti-hunting groups, including the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), attempted to have Commissioner Richards removed from office. In an act of revenge, anti-hunting groups are working to take your hunting rights away. HSUS president Wayne Pacelle has said that his organization is out to ban all hunting in California, beginning with the easiest sell. Today the target is hunting with hounds. Tomorrow it will be bow hunting, dove hunting or even ...
CACEO Legislative Alert: Last week, Senate Bill 1472, which is strongly supported by CACEO, was approved by the California Senate by a 36-0 vote. This bill lifts the sunset on Civil Code Section 2929.3. That is the section that provides for a $ 1000 per day fine for owners of vacant foreclosed property who refuse to keep that property maintained. This provision, which is slated to expire at the end of this year, will be indefinitely extended if SB 1472 is enacted into law. At this point, we are off to a promising start with our 36-0 vote. In addition to CACEO, SB 1472 is supported by the Attorney General, the California Police Chiefs Association and the California Narcotic Officers Association.
