Steven Greenhut on What to Expect from the California Legislature This Session
California residents should hold on to their wallets. On Monday, the state legislature headed back to the Capitol for the new session. Legislators' short stint at the Capitol in December offered a preview of what's coming down the pike, and some of it reinforces Judge Gideon Tucker's famous quip: "No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session." Steven Greenhut reviews some of the ideas legislators have for this session, including minimum wage laws, and rules for public school mascots, but no serious attempt to tackle the state's fiscal crisis.
