SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)—California lawmakers will be on recess in a matter of days which means that there will be a flurry of activity the next few days in Sacramento.
There are about 400 bills to pour through over next four days of the session—that’s about 100 a day and that tells says just how much attention is being paid to some.
While there has always been talk about reforming the process, there is a fundamental reason why it can’t be done. There are all these lawmakers up there and they have to do something. So what they do is propose bills and end up passing them because the thinking is: “I’m going to vote for yours and in return, you’ll vote for mine.” And so they always ends up with this landslide at the end; it just happens.
