Lame Duck Laundry List


Political columnist Jill Stewart lists some of the stinky, recently-passed Democratic bills sitting on Gov. Gray Davis' desk. Among them:

AB 1309, by Jackie Goldberg. After a school district tears down houses to build a school, this allows a district to go tear down somebody else's house, somewhere else, to put up housing for those originally displaced. The intent is to make white suburbanites, whom Goldberg detests, suffer instead of brown urbanites. Watch for lawsuits by broad-sided homeowners.

AB 1742. If your taxman has more than 100 clients, he now must send your return in via Internet.
