It is FRACKING maddening! SB 4 launched the insanely short-sighted, extreme fracking, climate wrecking, health impacting, methane releasing, drinking water polluting, earthquake inducing, water supply depleting, railcar exploding and pipeline puncturing BLACK GOLD rush in the middle of California's drought impacted farm community and densely packed urban areas. The draft regulation piñata for the oil companies has coated Governor Brown in extreme crude and burst the myth that he has any real care the long term economic and environmental health of California and will lock us on a disastrous path that replicates all of the damage being done in the rest of the country. WE, AT THE LOCAL LEVEL ARE THE LAST LINE OF DEFENSE. And if we drop the ball, perhaps it will serve us right when we are 6 feet deep in "La Brea Tar Pits" all across this country.
URGENT NMUSD PARENTS PLEASE READ: Dear Parents, Your District needs your support in a letter writing, emailing and calling campaign to members of the State Assembly and Governor Brown.

Apparently Governor Brown has figured out what to do with the expected Budget Surplus --- FRESNO, Calif. (KMJ) -- California's payroll costs could soon be going up again. A tentative agreement between Governor Jerry Brown and the California Association of Professional Scientists, could cause payroll expenditures to increase, by around $19 million over the next two years. The labor agreement calls for giving a 4.5% pay raise to about 3,000 unionized scientists. The union has been pushing for an across-the-board salary boost, saying that members earn far less than their counterparts, who are employed by other agencies.
I really hope that Governor Jerry Brown sticks to his guns with regard to the issue of court funding here in California. The court system is incredibly misused as a first resort for resolution of conflicts, when it was designed to be used as a last resort. The biggest "pet peeve" judges have is that counsel don't properly meet and confer before appearing in court or for trial, despite what the Code provides. I know perfectly well that MANY attorneys file motions with the court BEFORE even attempting to resolve the issue(s) outside of court. Along with budget cuts is the reality that attorneys must seriously consider assisting their clients to resolve disputes outside of court. Since they weren't doing this AND since the courts were meant to be used only as a last resort, I am afraid that the only way to stop this abuse is to cut the funding. Governor Brown, I beg you to hold firm in your stance!
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. Californians, I encourage you to thank these senators for trying. They need our support and encouragement. Attempted Hero's, Ayes: Beall, Corbett, De León, DeSaulnier, Evans, Hancock, Jackson, Leno, Lieu, Liu, Mitchell, Monning, Padilla, Pavley, Steinberg, Wolk The bought and sold senators who did not heed your calls to action to protect our best interest as a whole?

5/30/14 Dear President Obama, U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, Governor Brown, Richard Bloom and Cristina Garcia, The use of lethal force on Our Pets by law enforcement is a violation of Our Constitutional Rights, yet it happens every single day in the United States of America, and to this day, I have not heard one of my Political Leaders addressing this horrific and barbaric practice of allowing our Public Servants - Police Officers to murder Our Pets. This is unacceptable from a Country that prides itself on freedom. We even have a document of freedom called the Bill of Rights. It documents the freedoms which belong to us and cannot be revoked unless they are ignored and superseded by tyrannical leadership. Two Pet Dogs were shot today by Police Officer’s use of lethal force, the shootings were in the State of Texas and the State of Oklahoma. Sincerely, Patty Jackson
Governor Brown appoints Awet Kidane to serve as Director of DCA; Tracy Rhine appointed to serve as Deputy Director:
Governor Jerry Brown thinks fracking has zero impact on Californians. We beg to differ, and so do the people who live in the state’s most-fracked county: Fracking is bad for our climate and bad for people. We’re calling on Governor Brown to ban fracking, but we don’t want him to just hear it from us…
We are all stunned and disappointed by Judge Brown's decision today. Given the evidence presented in the hearing on Wednesday, we feel his decision was neither in the best interest of the People or Mr. Hubbart. We do not intend to accept this decision. We have been in contact with our legislators and have their full support in taking this direct to Governor Brown. This rural area is in no way a suitable location for Mr. Hubbart. Children walk home from school thru this remote neighborhood and will be at extreme risk. Law enforcement is completely inadequate to be able to handle a high-risk, sexually violent predator. There is NO street lighting or paved roads in this area. Mr. Hubbart has no ties to the High Desert area of Los Angeles County. He has family in other counties of the State and should be where he is located so he will have the best chance for success. In Lake Los Angeles, he will not be welcome. We find it highly doubtful that he knows he is going to be in this part of Los Angeles County. He ...
Kern County is the most-fracked county in California by a wide margin. This region also has the worst air quality in the nation, as well as highly elevated rates of cancer and respiratory illness. For the people that live here, fracking means more oil extraction, more crippling climate impacts, and more impacts on their health. But residents of Kern County are fighting back. They've invited California Governor Jerry Brown to come see the impacts of fracking for himself. Join them and sign the petition to Governor Brown here:
Check this out MEDIA ADVISORY Contact: Governor's Press Office Saturday, March 1, 2014 (916) 445-4571 Governor Brown Signs Drought Legislation SACRAMENTO – As California grapples with the driest period in its history, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today signed legislation to assist drought-affected communities and provide funding to better use local water supplies. “Legislators across the aisle have now voted to help hard-pressed communities that face water shortages,” said Governor Brown. “This legislation marks a crucial step – but Californians must continue to take every action possible to conserve water.” The legislation had broad, bipartisan support. SB 103 passed 34-2 in the Senate and 64-3 in the Assembly. SB 104 passed 33-3 in the Senate and 68-1 in the Assembly. The bills provide $687.4 million to support drought relief, including money for housing and food for workers directly impacted by the drought, bond funds for projects to help local communities more efficiently capture and manag ...

GREAT NEWS! Gov. Jerry Brown (signed Speaker John A. Pérez's (AB 1035, which extends death benefits to 420 weeks after the injury, instead of 240 weeks. This is a huge win for public safety men and women in California who put their lives on the line everyday keeping our communities safe. Thank you to everyone who sent letters of support, to every legislator who voted for the measure and to Governor Brown for signing this important measure! A message from Governor Brown:
Happy May Revise Day! Earlier this morning, Governor Brown rolled out his May Revisions for 2014/15, which include an additional $2.4 billion in revenue. As expected, the budget for CSU remained the same, with the governor proposing another allocation of an additional $142 million on top of our base budget. FEAR NOT! Your advocacy leading up to this has not be in vain! We’ve been banking on the legislature being the one to take action on our behalf, particularly with the Assembly given the Speaker’s support and that of many of his Assembly colleagues. Our budget advocacy work with the CSU is going very well and we have almost ½ of the legislature signed on to a letter in support of our additional funding!! Now, this is where we need to kick our advocacy up a notch! The Assembly and Senate budget subcommittees will work together over the next few weeks to determine what additional money, if any, they add to the budget for CSU. We’re optimistic that they will add some money, but we need your HELP pu ...

Governor Brown and I have worked very closely over the last couple of years regarding the jails and how to improve conditions and deal with re-alignment. I am very appreciative of his endorsement. We have spent a lot of time working through numerous public safety issues in Sacramento, most specifically the jail overcrowding and re-alignment. Thank you Governor Brown.

California raised taxes at the request of Governor Brown in order to avoid reforming public employees’ pensions and to avoid making other needed reforms. My Anna Bryson for State Assembly 2014 platform says: “Unfunded public-employee defined-benefit pension liabilities are currently the single greatest threat to the provision of basic public services in California. The state already has $400 billion in unfunded pension costs that will cause layoffs of teachers and police officers unless we freeze the size of pensions today and start offering 401(k) pensions going forward.” Link to Brian Calle interviews Grover Norquist:

Governor Brown, you're doing a fine job. Must be that evil pot that's killing the state.
MY friend posted this so I had to steal it .Why do I have to claim my state income tax refund as income? It isn't income. It's change, because you overcharged me and now YOU owe ME. When you buy something at a store for $15, and give the cashier a $20 bill, they give you $5 change. That isn't income. It was my money already. I have no doubt that if Governor Owe'Malley could figure out a way to charge taxes on that, he would. I suspect he is leaving that task for Lt. Governor Brown.

The Children's Village of Sonoma County needs your help, now more than ever before. Nick Honey, MSW, Human Services Department Family, Youth & Children's Division calls the Village, "A wonderful Program", February 28, 2014 Press Democrat! What the Press Democrat did not say is: The Village keep sibling groups together. Reduces multiple placements in foster homes. Provides a family-like environment with trained house parents who reside with foster youth in four separate homes. Due to California's budget crisis, and changes made to foster care funding by bill AB74 passed in December 2013, all of our children are at risk of being moved out of the Village immediately. Please contact your representative and Governor Brown. As a result of AB74, children are no longer being referred to live in the Village. This is a disaster for children in our county and state, and sibling groups in particular. This is a disaster for our unique, successful model of foster care.

CONGRATULATIONS to my brother, Joe L Del Bosque! You and Governor Brown plus the other farmers who attended the round-table discussion with the President scored a huge goal! We saw you and Maria Gloria standing next to the President as the latter announced the short-term emergency actions and the long-term plans and initiatives that will be needed. We know how hard you have worked for several years to get attention to the water issues. For the first time, we are optimistic that finally real progress will be made. I loved it when the President reminded people that if Pres. John Kennedy and then-Gov. Edmund Brown could come together to build the California Water Project, then surely he and Gov. Jerry Brown can come together to develop the next stage to ensure California's future water resources. Outstanding, impressive work, mi hermano! Thank you!
Protocol? Our freeway signs remind us that Governor Brown and Mayor Garcetti are letting us know we are in a serious drought situation here in SoCal.

Today, Central Valley farmers and families were dealt another blow when the California Department of Water Resources reduced State Water Project allocations from 5% to 0% in light of yesterday’s finding that the California snowpack is only 12% of its average this time of year. The pressure this decision puts on the already dangerously low reservoirs and groundwater banks is unsustainable. That is why House Republicans have put forth and will vote next week on a solution to California's man-made water problems. This bill, led by Rep. David Valadao (CA-21) and joined by myself and every other California Republican House member, is a responsible answer to the hardship the Central Valley is currently facing. Unfortunately, Governor Brown and Senator Feinstein oppose the House solution. Perhaps more disturbing is their failure of leadership in offering a solution of their own to bring Central Valley communities new or additional water. As the House acts on Rep. Valadao’s legislation next week, I urge Gover ...

Bob's letter to the San Jose Mercury News really connects the dots between trees and drought. Halt clear-cutting to help conserve water Governor Brown declared a state of drought emergency 1/17/14, and used the phrase "dependent on nature" in his announcement. That indicates we can do little to increase precipitation, but we hope he also understands that "nature" also includes the great forests of California. That vast timberland is the first line in water conservation, where rain and snow are received and water stored in the root-laced soil under trees. "Emergency" means that the biggest land owner in California, Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) should put aside dreams of future wood profits, and voluntarily suspend their destructive tree harvest called clear-cutting. Removing multiple large tracts of tree cover leaves the barren soil baking under the sun. If SPI fails to realize their responsibility in protecting the source of our water supplies, Governor Brown should declare a moratorium on clear-cuttin ...

Change.org Victory! My friend Sara Kruzan was granted parole by Gov. Brown, setting her free after being sentenced to life in prison for killing the man who trafficked and abused her for years. Bart -- On October 17th, I started a petition asking Gov. Jerry Brown of California to grant my friend Sara Kruzan parole. Sara has been incarcerated since she was 16 years-old for killing the man who forced her into commercial sexual exploitation as a young girl, and the Governor was set to make a decision on her case by the end of the month. But then something incredible happened -- you and more than 250,000 people signed my petition, and within ten days it won! Governor Brown announced on Sunday that he would grant Sara parole! This victory for Sara has been years in the making. In 2010 Gov. Schwarzenegger commuted her sentence after an incredible amount of public pressure. On January 18th of this year, Sara’s sentence was reduced to second degree murder and she was fast-tracked to parole, but she still needed ...

According to today"s Sacramento Bee, Governor Brown said yesterday that California's decade of dysfunction was broken through a series of ballot measure that raised taxes, created a citizens redistricting commission, changed the primary election system, lengthened term limits and reduced the vote requirement for the budget to a majority. In 2004 (yes 2004!), Capitol Seminars founder Ray LeBov wrote the following: "I believe that a comprehensive package that includes open primaries, fair redistricting, more realistic term limits, elimination of the 2/3 vote requirement for the budget, and elimination of budgeting by initiative would greatly enhance the process."
Thousands of small generators could be creating electricity along the thousand mile long California aqueduct. Why this is not used I don't know, maybe I'm the only person to have thought about it. The plus and minus polarity of the north and south poles is another possible source of electricity, but I'm pretty sure I'm the only one to have ever thought about that. I think I'll put this in an email to Governor Brown, a major advocate of advanced energy public and private good works here in California. A call to my former Congress representative Mary Bono and Mayor of L.A. led to proposals and now in effect solar energy projects in the Mojave Desert. Another request for more doctors being needed to Bono, led to the new opening of a Doctors' training center at the University of California at Riverside. An individual sometimes can do a lot, but it's best wise to never hog the credit, and to remember any idea will be judged by many people. Keep any suggestion or request as broad and simple as possible, since . ...
Governor Brown visits San Diego for bill-signing ceremony -
THANK YOU LIST SB 360 was signed yesterday by Governor Brown. It doesn't mandate open source for election systems, but enables it. It clears a path and provides money to implement it. It will succeed because once we have great open source free election software, adhering to international standards, who is going pay for crappy secret proprietary methods? Open Voting Consortium (OVC), founded in 2003, led the charge for open source for election. I worked on the project for several years leading up to founding the organization. We closed the organization at the end of 2010, but have continued to work as an unincorporated group. We were the only group testifying in favor of Assemblymember Phil Ting's AB 19 (thanks Brent Turner) at the Assembly elections committee hearing this year. We demonstrated our prototype open source voting machine up and down the state 2004 to 2009. People wanted to know when it would be available but there were significant barriers in front of us. SB 360 knocks down those barriers. T ...

Brown Jr. today signed three bills to expand access to fresh, locally-grown food in communities across California. “This farm to fork legislation expands access to fresh, local produce and will help make our communities healthier,” said Governor Brown. The Governor signed the following bills today: • AB 224 by Assemblymember Richard S. Gordon (D-Menlo Park): Establishes health and safety standards for “community-supported agriculture” to ensure that Californians can continue to access local food directly from farmers. • AB 551 by Assemblymember Philip Y. Ting (D-San Francisco): Allows cities and counties to establish Urban Agriculture Incentive Zones, to help encourage owners of undeveloped properties to use their land for urban farming, providing communities with urban green space and a local food source. • AB 654 by Assemblymember Isadore Hall III (D-Compton): Extends the ...

CONTACT GOVERNOR BROWN TODAY!! This year the California Legislature passed the most restrictive collection of anti-gun laws in decades DESIGNED TO END GUN OWNERSHIP IN CALIFORNIA!! Our last chance to stop these laws before having to spend millions to fight them in court for years is for Governor Brown to veto them. Governor Brown needs to be reminded that he has millions of constituents that are law-abiding gun owners, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters and that Californians do not support outrageous anti-gun and anti-hunting legislation, like those in New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Connecticut or worse. If we do not stop these bills NOW our children will never know the fundamental rights of self defense, hunting, self reliance and private ownership of firearms nor the freedoms this Country was founded on.

During his time in California from 1976 to 1983, Banks earned an associate's degree from the University of California, Davis. He taught at Deganawida Quetzecoatl University (DQU), a Native American-controlled institute of alternative higher learning, where he became the first American Indian chancellor. In 1978 he established the first spiritual run from Davis to Los Angeles, which is now an annual event. In the spring of 1979, he taught at Stanford University. After Governor Brown left office, in 1984 Banks received sanctuary from the Onondaga Nation in upstate New York. While in New York, Banks organized the Great Jim Thorpe Longest Run from New York to Los Angeles; the goal was to restore the gold medals Thorpe had won at the 1912 Olympics to the Thorpe family. In 1985 Banks left Onondaga to surrender to law enforcement officials in South Dakota. He served 18 months in prison related to the 1973 charges for the Custer riot. After his release, he worked as a drug and alcohol counselor on the Pine Ridge ...
(Friday 06-28-13 at 5 PM) Based on the decision earlier this week by the United States Supreme Court, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals today lifted its stay on the lower court ruling which had struck down Prop 8, the ban on same sex marriage. Governor Brown then immediately ordered all county clerks to start issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples. California Attorney General Kamala Harris then conducted the first *** marriage ceremony in California since the Supreme Court ruling. She married the *** couple who were among the plaintiffs in the anti Prop 8 lawsuit.

CBP (California Budget Project) Releases Statement on the 2013-14 Budget Agreement: A New Chapter for Our State, With More Work to Be Done The California Budget Project has released the following statement from Executive Director Chris Hoene in response to Governor Jerry Brown's signing of the 2013-14 budget this morning: "The 2013-14 state budget signed by Governor Brown today signals a new chapter for California. Thanks to the additional revenues approved by voters last November, this budget lays the foundation for our state to begin reinvesting in education, job training, child care, and other public services and systems that are essential to strong communities and widely shared economic opportunity. Also, the Governor and legislators have taken major steps forward by expanding Medi-Cal eligibility to over a million low-income Californians and by fundamentally restructuring K-12 school finance in order to provide additional dollars to educate disadvantaged students."

BART’s two largest unions have given their leadership the authority to call a strike. Read BART’s response, including a letter from BART Board President Tom Radulovich to Governor Brown, and take a moment to complete our survey about salary and benefits.
Dear State of California, While I love your people, the decisions your are making are maddening. "We the People" spoke our mind with Prop 8 which has been systematically minimized and invalidated. Regardless of what the supreme court OR Governor Brown say, a cat can have kittens in the oven, but that doesn't make them biscuits! (Meaning... a homosexual union is NOT the same as a heterosexual marriage...) C.S, Lewis once penned, "A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell. I pity the lunatics that keep trying.
More civil rights and more equality for ALL Americans - that is the mission and the ultimate goal. The California Legislature and Governor Brown need to immediately pass a referendum for a vote of the people in California to permanently amend the California State Constitution to guarantee full marriage rights to ALL California citizens and legal, documented immigrants. Such an amendment would NOT infringe on or limit the constitutional rights of various churches that do not sanction LGBT marriage. They would still be free to grant church/religiously sanctioned marriages only to members of their churches under their church bylaws, but full civil marriage rights must be guaranteed to ALL Californians and ALL Americans.

The bill will cap patient's prescription co-payments to $100.00. Specialty drug users may feel ACA pain By BERNARD J. WOLFSON ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER The Affordable Care Act might not make care much more affordable for some Californians who need expensive prescription drugs to treat chronic illnesses or just to stay alive. The health plans to be marketed in the California insurance exchange, established under President Barack Obama’s health reform law, will follow the lead of Medicare and a growing number of commercial insurers by charging co-insurance payments ranging from 10 to 30 percent on a range of high-cost “specialty” drugs. These include medications for treating rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, hepatitis C, breast cancer, leukemia and other conditions. Advocates for the sick are unhappy that Covered Cal . ...
Dear Restore the Delta Friends, The California Legislature is beginning the process to craft a new water bond. We are asking all our members to call and/or write Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg and tell him: We are calling on you to protect the Sacramento River and the Sacramento-San Joaquin Bay Delta estuary. Therefore, we are asking you to stop the creation of a water bond that has any money for mitigation of Governor Brown's peripheral tunnel project (BDCP). The Department of Water Resources has failed to conduct a full cost benefit analysis of the BDCP, ignoring its own guidelines, and alternatives to the BDCP have not been adequately analyzed by the California Resources Agency. Furthermore, no river or estuary has ever been restored by having the majority of its water diverted. We do, however, support public funds for water projects that promote regional self-sufficiency in other parts of the state and that will help to permanently decrease the amount of water taken from the Delta.

Highlights of this week: 1) Sadie and Elena learned how to say "This is appalling" in response to yesterday's news about spying. 2) Over 10,000 MoveOn members joined Sen. Elizabeth Warren and me for an emergency briefing on the student loan crisis, and today thousands of them dropped by Congressional offices to tell their stories and lobby for action. 3) Navy veteran Trina McDonald made a high-profile trip to Washington with her MoveOn petition for justice for sexual violence victims, culminating with an appearance with CNN's Jake Tapper. 4) MoveOn members in CA escalated their campaign to ban fracking in the state -- including sending 10,000 faxes to Governor Brown. So proud to work with these courageous, energized members and a kick *** team.
California's Ultra-Progressive Senate is trying to lead the way for banning guns outright. Several bills have been passed thru the Senate that will not only ban certain types of guns but will cost "ANY and ALL" firearm owner trying to buy ammunition for their firearms. At the moment the bills are before the Assembly for their vote and if it wins there then on to the Governor. I urge each and every Californian to write to their Assemblyman/Assemblywomen and ask they to vote no on these bills and to Governor Brown and ask him to veto any that reach his desk. Be sensible and polite in your letters. Try not to compare gun related deaths to other forms of violent and accidental deaths, just try to state your stance on the issue of gun control why the bills are a bad idea. Reviewing these bills they will do nothing to keep guns out of the hands of criminals but will make criminals out of normally law abiding people who think these bills are wrong and wish to keep their arms. Who will foot the cost of enforcing ...

Ramirez, who bravely gave his life in service to our state and nation. The Governor and First Lady extend their deepest condolences to his family and friends at this difficult time. Spc. Ray A. Ramirez, 20, of Sacramento, CA, died June 1, in Wardak Province, Afghanistan, of injuries sustained when enemy forces attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device. He was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Stewart, GA. Spc. Ramirez was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom. In memorial, Governor Brown ordered that flags be flown at half-staff over the State Capitol today. Spc. Ramirez's family will receive a letter of condolence from the Governor.
Today, Gov. Brown & Congresswoman Lee are visiting to participate in the dedication of the Zero Net Energy Center on Catalina Street. I will be speaking at the ceremony. Here are my prepared remarks. _ Governor Brown, Congresswomen Lee, and other esteemed guests, welcome to San Leandro. The future is being created today in California. Californians are spearheading revolutions in advanced manufacturing, communications, information technology, and clean energy. In San Leandro, we are transforming our city into a center of innovation. Lit San Leandro, an ultra-high speed fiber optic loop that circles San Leandro's industrial core, became operational last year. No city in the nation has a broadband network faster than San Leandro. A billion dollar, union constructed, state-of-the art hospital and medical complex – Kaiser San Leandro - will open next year. And no better example of how the future is being created today in California exists than the IBEW-NECA Zero Net Energy Center. In seventeen years, all ...

I am delighted to be here on this occasion for though it is the 94th anniversary of the Charter, in a sense this is the ...
California SB 1016 Transfers Public School Property Wealth to Charter School Private managers. SB 1016 has, in my reading of the bill, a harmful clause in it for the State's school boards to deal with. However, the bill, that passed the State Legislature and was signed by Governor Brown becomes inoperative in June and sunsets fully in January 1, 2014. Here is the portion of the bill that I believes does harm to public school districts and their school property: (25.1) Existing law authorizes the governing board of any school district to sell or lease any real property, together with any personal property located on the real property, belonging to the school district which is not or will not be needed by the school district for school classroom buildings at the time of delivery of title or possession. This bill would require the governing board of a school district seeking to sell or lease real property designed to provide direct instruction or instructional support it deems to be surplus property to firs ...

Clarfication: the bill passed today by the CA Assembly will allow transgender students to use restrooms of their chosen gender at school and play on their school's sports teams of their chosen gender. This would apply to all levels of California schools. Do you support this bill, which now goes to the State Senate, and do you think Governor Brown should sign it into law?
The California State Assembly has passed a bill that will allow transgender people to use public restrooms that serve the sex with which they identify, and allow them to play on sports teams with others of the sex with which they identify, among other rights. Do you support this bill, and should Governor Brown sign it if the State Senate passes it?

Dear California NVIC Advocacy Team Members, We wanted to give you a follow-up on two important bills in California that affect your exemption rights to vaccination and your parental rights. AB 2109 passed last year and AB 599 died in the Assembly Health Committee on April 16, 2013. AB 2109: AB2109 is a bill that was signed into law by Governor Brown on Sept. 30, 2012. The new law mandates new requirements for parents who choose to exempt their child from vaccine requirements for school. Beginning Jan. 1, 2014 personal belief exemptions will have to be signed by a health care practitioner. (1) We are hearing from an increasing number of parents who are being told by the school that they must get an additional signature on their personal beliefs exemption, required by the passage of AB 2109, NOW in order to register their child for school. This is NOT TRUE. If you are told by a school official that you need to have your personal belief exemption signed by a health care practitioner before your ...

To date, Governor Brown has not endorsed any candidate running for office in the City of Los Angeles for the 2013 municipal cycle. “Gil Cedillo is a proven local leader who knows how to bring people together to get things done," said Governor Brown.

What's it mean to be a Vol? In May of 1846 a unit of 63 men were sent by General Zachery Taylor to investigate rumors of Mexican forces building up strongholds in Texas. Eleven we're killed and the rest captured. President James K. Polk, a Tennesseean, called an emergency meeting of his cabinet. Congress agreed that a state of war existed with Mexico. The President then requested 2,600 men from each state to strengthen the meager 8,000 man force that was in place. Tennessee Governor Aaron Brown issued the proclamation in Nashville. With the recent memory of fellow Tennesseeans Sam Houston and David Crocket giving their lives in defense of Texas some 30,000 VOLUNTEERS answered Governor Brown's call within a week. I will give my all for Tennessee today. GBO

February 1, 1829...John Potts Slough (February 1, 1829, Cincinnati, OH – December 17, 1867, Santa Fe, NM) was an American politician, lawyer, Union general during the Civil War, and Chief Justice of New Mexico. He commanded the Union forces at the Battle of Glorieta Pass. In 1861 the Civil War began and Slough joined the Union forces as a captain in the 1st Colorado "Pike's Peakers" Volunteer Regiment. Members of his regiment were initially skeptical of his loyalty to the Union due to his association with the Democratic Party. In August 1861, Slough was commissioned colonel of the regiment. In 1862 a Confederate army was invading the New Mexico Territory. Coming to the aid of the Union forces in New Mexico, Slough marched his regiment to Fort Union and, as the senior ranking officer, assumed command of the post. Slough received orders from Col. Edward R. S. Canby, commanding the Department of New Mexico, to remain at Fort Union. A Confederate force under William Read Scurry was moving to capture Fort Un ...
MEDGAR EVERS Early Life Renowned civil rights activist Medgar Evers was born on July 2, 1925, in Decatur, Mississippi. Growing up in a Mississippi farming family, Evers was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1943. He fought in both France and Germany during World War II, and received an honorable discharge in 1946.

When Colonel Harland Sanders retired at the age of 65, he had little to show for himself, except an old Caddie roadster, a $105 monthly pension check, and a recipe for chicken. Knowing he couldn't live on his pension, he took his chicken recipe in hand, got behind the wheel of his van, and set out to make his fortune. His first plan was to sell his chicken recipe to restaurant owners, who would in turn give him a residual for every piece of chicken they sold--5 cents per chicken. The first restaurateur he called on turned him down. So did the second. So did the third. In fact, the first 1008 sales calls Colonel Sanders made ended in rejection. Still, he continued to call on owners as he traveled across the USA, sleeping in his car to save money. Prospect number 1009 gave him his first "yes." After two years of making daily sales he had signed up a total of five restaurants. Still the Colonel pressed on, knowing that he had a great chicken recipe and that someday the idea would catch on. Of course, you kno ...

SACRAMENTO, CA (CDCAN) [Last updated 01/31/2013 10:00 PM] – Senior officials of the Brown Administration will convene a stakeholder meeting open to the public, February 1st, Friday afternoon at 1:00 PM at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento for the first in a series of discussions on how the State should proceed in implementing next year a major expansion of Medi-Cal eligibility allowed under the federal health care reform act.

PLEASE send this IMPORTANT letter about coyote killing contest to the following email address: askregion1YOUN ALL!!! To: California Fish and Wildlife, Northern California BLM, U.S. Forest Service, Governor Jerry Brown, and Congressman Tom McClintock: I strongly oppose California's sanctioning of wildlife killing contests – in particular the upcoming "Coyote Drive 2013" scheduled for Feb. 8-10 in Adin, CA. The sponsors are Adin Supply Company and Pit River Rod and Gun Club. Not only are such contest hunts offensive in their wanton waste of wildlife and disregard for the important ecological role coyotes (and other predators) play in maintaining ecosystem health and species diversity but they also pose a significant threat to the recovery of gray wolves in California.

been a long time since I heard "California Uber Alles" by the Dead Kennedys- interesting that they refer to Jerry Brown as Governor- and future Fuhrer- of California! What year is it?
California's projected tax revenue may not live up to its promise.
Speaking of great governors, Governor Jerry Brown sure is doing a great job fixing the fiscal mess Schwarzenegger left in CA.

JayInslee 2 Obama: As Governor, I will Bankrupt like U R 4 America & Brown is 4
I was called a racist today because I called a women out for.voting for Barack Hussein because he was black. This made her mad.. for the record I will lose good sleep over an Obama voter.being offended by something I said. Anyways I told her that she voted for Obama for the same reason 93% of the black voters voted for him... He's black. Never in Presidential politics has any candidate received 93% of any voting block. She went on to tell me the GOP didn't get black or Latino votes because we weren't very nice to those people.. it is good that we weren't face to face.. in the presence of that kind of stupidity I would have been unable to stop laughing.

Brown likely makes a decision tonight. Senate or wait for Governor's race?
Governor Brown gave his speech the other day and was loudly cheered for saying that equality was not justice! I guess he wants to turn California into Orwell's "Animal Farm" where some people are more equal than others.
A lawyer phoned the governor's mansion shortly after midnight. "I need to talk to the governor, it's an emergency!" exclaimed the lawyer. After some cajoling, the governor's aide eventually agreed to wake him up. "So, what is it that's so important it can't wait until morning?" grumbled the governor. "Judge Brown just died, and I want to take his place," pleaded the attorney. "Well, it's OK with me if it's OK with the mortuary," came the reply.

I'm exchanging shoes at Aldo yesterday... Me: "I need to exchange these shoes I got as a Christmas present. This box has 2 LEFT shoes in it." Girl: "Ok, let me exchange it." She gets a new box, works in her register for a while. Girl: "Ok, that will be 22 cents please." Me: "Huh? Are you serious? I'm just exchanging the shoes." Girl: "Yes, that will be 22 cents please. The sales tax rate changed. Now you owe us 22 cents." Me: "So, you give me a box with 2 LEFT shoes in it. I drive all the way over here and fight to park in this mall to get a box with a RIGHT and a LEFT shoe, and you want me to pay you 22 cents?" Girl: "Yes, that's right. You need to pay us 22 cents." I only have a $20, so I give it to her and get an unruly amount of change. Girl: "Do you want a bag?" Me: "Umm, sure. Why not." Girl: "That will be 10 cents please."
Fracking threatens our essential resources in California. From the excessive use of our fresh water to toxic chemical-laden waste water, fracking for natural gas and oil unnecessarily endangers our health and future. We need to ban fracking now!
Broken promise on Proposition 30! Governor’s Budget Proposal: The Good and The Bad (from Senator Bob Huff's office): The Governor’s budget proposal contains new funding for our classrooms, which is a positive step forward for California. However, the Governor’s proposal only seems to include $2.7 billion in new funding for K-12 schools and community colleges even though Proposition 30 taxes will generate $6 billion this year alone. Schools are only getting 40% of what they were promised from Proposition 30. I remain concerned that while state spending will increase by $6 billion over last year, much of this money will be used to fund state employee benefit and pay increases and grow non-education-related programs. The Governor’s General Fund budget is slated to increase 25% over the next four years. This isn’t what was sold to voters when they voted for Proposition 30 last November. Essentially, this budget is balanced by a seven-year $45 billion tax increase while Californians have yet to see a ...
Puerto Rico issues will influence the increasingly important group of voters of Puerto Rico origin in the 50 States. However, some may not realize that what they say about Puerto Rico can also have a significant impact on Hispanic voters in general. First and foremost, Hispanics wish to be acknowledged as Americans --that, despite our origin, we are a part of "We the People of the United States." Nothing captures the essence of this problem more clearly than Balzac v. People of Porto Rico, a little-known case that the U.S. Supreme Court decided in 1922. Most Americans would not conceive of the Supreme Court making decisions about the application of the Constitution on the basis of race or origin. But that is precisely what was done in this case. When in 1917 Congress granted U.S. citizenship to Puerto Ricans, it was generally understood that the Islands had been incorporated into the United States. But, five years later, the Supreme Court decided that an American citizen residing in Puerto Rico did ...

Charles Reed Bishop is a criminal. Like the Nazis during World War II, United States President McKinley’s administration during the Spanish-American War in 1898 purported to annex the Hawaiian Islands and put into operation a plan that endeavored to assimilate Hawaiian subjects and residents of the islands politically, culturally, socially and economically into the United States of America. Their goal was to obliterate the national character of the Hawaiian Kingdom and to fortify the Hawaiian Islands as a military outpost to protect the west coast of the United States from foreign invasion. To do this, the administration enlisted the assistance of insurgents such as Sanford Dole who was appointed by McKinley as governor of the p ...
I've started the petition "Califoria EDD: Streamline the unemployment process" and need your help to get it off the ground. Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here's the link: why it's important: Online claim forms, continued claim forms and basic transactions with the California Employment Development Department should take full advantage of available technology, and save everyone all the paper, money, time and stress of the antiquated system as it is today. As of right now you cannot submit your continued claim form online if you need to report wages, or need to report jobs to which you have applied. You can’t look for a job if you’re on hold with the unemployment office! I didn’t receive my unemployment insurance benefits because I wasn't able to submit my continued claim form online. 10 separate times, I was supposed to receive a paper claim form, but didn't get it. I wasn't able to call because the phones are nearly always completely jammed, and when I submitted an online r ...

Tell Your Representatives to Ban Fracking Now Dear lucy, Oil and gas corporations have already begun fracking in California and Governor Jerry Brown is doing nothing to stop them. Worse, his administration has released draft regulations that will allow oil and gas companies to continue to frack with little to no oversight. Because Governor Brown refuses to protect us, we need our state legislators to step up and take action. Tell your legislators that we need them to support legislation to ban fracking in California. Fracking, the process to extract oil or gas by blasting toxic chemicals, water, and sand into deep underground rock, is now underway and slated for massive expansion across California, including places that are sources of drinking water for millions of people. Nationwide, fracking has developed an extensive record of wat ...

Well, it's started! Andiamo tacked on a "Purchase Interest Charge" to a lunch bill. This is a result of a new law that started Monday, that allows businesses to pass along the cost of using charge cards to the purchaser. It's only 3 or 4%, but they didn't say a word about it. At least gasoline stations in the Detroit area post the extra charge if you use a credit card. Could have used cash (had the cash available) for no additional cost, but they never even mentioned it and it wasn't noticed until she got home. Guess Andiamo Livonia is no longer on our list of lunch places. Which leads to another rant: my wife has been retired for two years and so far, she has had her medical insurance premiums double, Governor Rick Snyder has started taxing pensions for the first time in history, we lost the Homestand Tax Credit on our income taxes and now we have to support business use of credit cards?? It's not like she can increase her hours at work to compensate. Michigan is really turning into a "pro business", ant ...

The State Ministry of Education had been directed to continue and conclude the exercise in which 13,000 personnel would be employed to boost government-owned primary, junior and senior secondary schools in the state.

To address accusations of racist and hate speech by Idle No More, it's members, and Idle No More News Group - we in no way promote hate or racism and never will. Our updates are being misconstrued as such, yet Canadians who frequent this page understand our all-inclusive stance and we are happy to work together with our brothers and sisters of difference races. And as our ancestors, we have our door open to the Canadian government to work together with us on equal terms. We've been excluded from such a relationship for generations, and to be accused of hate for demanding a renewing of this relationship is absurd. When we talk about the hate speech and racism conducted by the Canadian government, both historically and modern, we are simply addressing the truth. Racism is defined as viewing one race superior over another, our people NEVER held this view and this is proven in many historical documents, yet the Canadian government has toward us and others. Hate speech is defined as vilifying a person or group ...

Your Benefits under PERS Retirement System Are At Risk! By clicking on the link below you can go directly to the PERS website and view the effects of Senate Bill 2709, introduced by Nancy Collins of Tupelo, MS. This bill will make a number of changes to the retirement system that are adverse to both those already retired as well as those currently working under PERS retirement. Just a couple of examples are: •It will freeze the 13th check for a period of three(3) years, tie it to the consumer index, and cap it at a maximum of three percent going forward after that. Any member in state service on or after July 1 2013, cannot draw a 13th check until they reach age 62. •It will add 7 new members appointed by the Governor and Lt. Governor. It appears this may surrender control of your retirement board to the undercurrents of politics. •To read more click on link Making retroactive changes to benefits in an employee retirement system that adversely effects employees already covered under the system i ...

4 reasons Scott Brown should run for governor not in the Senate special election.
For my gun-illiterate friends, this is part of the reason why gun owners are so upset about the "gun control" laws. They're completely arbitrary, based on non-facts, and written by people who have no clue what they're talking about. The media and politicians don't want to make you safer. They want money and control.

California "wildlife" agencies are planning a coyote killing contest in NE California (Modoc County). THIS LINK HAS ACTION ITEMS, INCLUDING A PETITION. Killing coyotes- or any wild animal- as part of a ‘contest’ ‘tournament’ or ‘drive' is ethically indefensible, ecologically reckless, and contravenes new legislation (AB 2402) that Governor Jerry Brown recently signed into law which requires the Fish & Game Commission to use “ecosystem based management” and the best available science in the stewardship of California's wildlife.

EVERYONE HAS AN OPINION: 4 reasons Scott Brown should pass on the Senate special election and run for governor
SUPPORT LETTERS REQUESTED FOR SCA 7-WOLK – 55% VOTE FOR LIBRARY BONDS AND TAXES As you will recall from our reports to you early last month, Senator Lois Wolk (D-Davis) has introduced SCA 7, a constitutional measure which seeks to reduce the local vote threshold for local special taxes and construction bonds from the current two-thirds vote to 55%. The local special taxes would be dedicated to the funding of local library operations and the bonds would allow for the renovation, rehabilitation, or new construction of library facilities. In order for SCA 7 to become a reality, it will need to pass both houses of the legislature (by a 2/3rds vote in each house) and be signed by Governor Brown. It would then, most likely, be placed on the November 2014 statewide ballot, where it would need to be passed by a majority of the statewide electorate. If successful, all cities, counties and special districts would have the authority to place a special tax for library operations and/or a library construction bon .. ...

Join the discussion! - our Executive Director, Merrill Vargo: This is a time of unprecedented change for education. In recent days, state leaders have started to make a connection between two key issues that are usually discussed separately: school funding and school accountability. But these ideas should not be separate: the way we currently regulate and fund our schools is not only inefficient and inequitable, it also undermines the fundamental accountability relationship between schools and the communities they serve. Too often today the phrase “education reform” seems to mean firing a few teachers and opening another charter school, strategies that will never touch most students. By making his proposal for a “local control funding formula” for schools, Governor Brown has taken a major step toward connecting funding with accountability and defining education reform in way that has the potential for much broader impact. I recently wrote an Op Ed ((PDF)), which was published in the San Francisco ...

Two Boston pediatricians consider how to prevent gun deaths in children in an opinion piece in The New England Journal of Medicine.
by: Jeffrey Ann Goudie .. Freelance writer Bruised Kansas Posted: 01/29/2013 4:59 pm Kansas has become the caricature of the starkly red state the nation always thought it was. Only it wasn't. Until now. I grew up in west Texas -- Midland, to be exact, the hometown claimed by George W. Bush -- and I experienced roguish conservatism. When I moved to Kansas to attend Kansas University in 1967, I was struck by the state's comparative progressive spirit and also the green, rolling hills of its northeast corner. I found the national stereotype of a flat, conservative state dead wrong. I married a Kansas history buff who educated me on the proud history of women in politics: Kansas was the first state in the nation to elect a woman mayor, the first to swear in an all-female town council, an early state to pass the women's suffrage amendment. We've had two female governors when many states, such as neighboring Missouri, have had none. My present hometown of Topeka had enough people of character to fight school s ...

The bill prevents second mortgage holders from pursuing a borrower after the closing of the short sale for the remaining balance on a loan (it does not protect someone who goes through foreclosure.) Junior lenders such as second or third mortgage, including HELOC's can no longer pursue a deficiency after a short sale"

May 15, 2012 2:42 PM PRINT TEXT Fla. woman Marissa Alexander gets 20 years for "warning shot": Did she stand her ground? comments57 inShare 7More By Julia Dahl Topics Daily Blotter Marissa Alexander / KYTX (CBS) - Last Friday, Jacksonville mother Marissa Alexander was sentenced by a Florida judge to 20 years in prison for firing what she says was a "warning shot" into the wall after a physical altercation with her husband, Rico Gray. The case has set off yet another controversy involving the state's "stand your ground" law, which is under intense scrutiny after the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in February. Critics, including Congresswoman Corrine Brown (D-Fla.), are crying foul. How, they ask, could a 31-year-old woman in a relationship with a man who had a history of domestic violence, and whose actions did not result in any physical injury, be sentenced to two decades in prison while George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed Martin, is out on bail?
