Governor Brown releases his 2015-16 budget proposal Governor Jerry Brown laid out his vision for the next four years that continues to build on a platform of fiscal restraint, paying down the state's wall of debt and fighting climate change. Governor Brown thanked both the legislature for their assistance toward this goal, and the voters for passing Proposition 30. Through these efforts, the state has created 1.3 million new jobs and the unemployment rate has dropped to 7.2 percent. With respect to education funding, a strengthening economy and the passage of Proposition 30 continue to provide higher state revenues. Increased state revenues will allow the state to invest nearly $8 billion in significant new funding for K-12 schools and community colleges. Highlights of the Governor's Budget Proposal include: K-12 Education Local Control Funding Formula - Provides a third-year investment of $4 billion in the Local Control Funding Formula. The Legislature estimates that funding per pupil under Proposition 9 ...
Governor Brown couldn't have gotten the Dead Kennedys to play California Uber Alles?
Record Number of Prison Lifers Released, but Few Return We were close! "recidivism rate of 1.7%" Here is the piece: "California has been paroling prison inmates with life sentences at a record rate since Governor Jerry Brown took office and, so far, they don’t seem to be bouncing back. That doesn’t mean there isn’t cause for alarm in some quarters. Governor Jerry Brown has had the final say on paroling 1,963 prison inmates serving life sentences. Of those, 33 have ended up back in prison, according to data gathered by the Los Angeles Times. The newspaper called it a “disturbing increase in revocations,” but a recidivism rate of 1.7% sounds pretty low even if the final tally isn’t in. It sounds especially low compared to the 48.7% recidivism rate for the overall prison population in the years preceding Governor Brown, from 1995-2010, cited in a study (pdf) by the Stanford Criminal Justice Center. During that time, only 5 of 860 paroled murderers returned to jail. It called that recidivism rate ...

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.

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 ...

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.

I am very happy to report that I've received an official endorsement from Governor Jerry Brown for my re-election as Monterey County Sheriff. 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:
Lt. Governor Brown is right, Doug Gansler’s claim that serving your country in Iraq isn’t a “real job” is reckless
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.

Senator Yee from: San Francisco, has been suspended from the California Senate, and now Governor Brown is asking for his expulsion. I hope that Senator Yee is gone for good! He does'nt deserve to be in Public Office, ever again!
Yee made repeated attempts to outlaw semi-automatic rifles, his SB 374 was vetoed by Governor Brown last year.

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. Something must be done - please help us get the wo ...

Governor Brown's proposed water fix involves the town of Hood which is along the Sacramento river. Very informative article.
THE PRESIDENT:  Well, first of all, I want to thank Joe and Maria Del Bosque and their beautiful daughters for showing Governor Brown and me around their farm. 
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. Do we really need to wash our cars if they are only a little dusty? What is the protocol for gently reminding someone that wasting water on a car wash may not be the best idea? Thoughts?
Governor Brown is helping Big Oil frack up California's communities and climate. Learn more about fracking in California and take action to demand a ban!
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 ...

Congratulations to Susan Riggs, Executive Director of the San Diego Housing Federation and Fieldstone Executive Learning Group graduate on her appointment to Governor Brown's Administration where she will serve as Deputy Secretary for Housing Policy in the Business, Consumer Services, and Housing Agency.

Citrus Heights Mayor Mel Turner and Rancho Cordova Mayor Dan Skoglund were my guests in the Assembly Chambers today for Governor Brown's State of the State address. Here is a view of Mayor Skoglund above the Assembly Floor and his son John on the Floor with his boss Senator Holly Mitchell.
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 ...
Our friends at Food and Water Watch are pulling together a rally to respond to Brown's drought declaration tomorrow morning in SF. Bay Area supporters please join them if you can. RTD staff cannot do this one. Breaking news: Governor Brown will make a major announcement tomorrow morning in San Francisco (most likely declaring a drought)...join us for a rally at 9:30am at 455 Golden Gate Avenue, and tell him to Ban Fracking Now (especially in a drought!)
Tune in to Eyewitness News at 10 on Fox. A state-wide drought has withered California resources, but Governor Brown says issuing a drought declaration won't do any good. A man's Achilles heel is severed due to a little league baseball player's celebration. And, your morning cup of coffee may now be sprinkled with vulnerability. Why the new Starbucks app has given hackers their fix. 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 ...

Some of the bills CAFF's policy team were working on in Sacramento passed! 9-28-2013/SACRAMENTO – Governor Edmund G. 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. Below are the anti-gun/anti-hunting bills you need to call, fax AND e-mail and urge Governor Brown to VETO. Governor Brown can be reached at: Phone: (916) 445-2841 Fax: (916) 558-3160 Email w ...
