Key Committee Fails To Take Up California Minimum Wage Bill

"A wise move considering the wage will go up automatically this coming January. Not to mention this bill would have come at a hefty price tag to the state government- over $4 Billion according to the Department of Finance."

Despite Side Deal Report, Support Lines Up for Iran Deal

"Support lines up? One NY Congressman. Seems like two key northeastern Senators (both Dems) in two weeks is more compelling evidence of an anti-deal groundswell."

Mandating a 50-Percent Reduction in Oil--at What Cost?

"California’s 100,000 electric vehicles are the most electric vehicles in any state, however, the other 97% of California’s 30 million vehicles that DO NOT run on electricity or other alternative fuels are consuming more than 40 million gallons of transportation fuels, gasoline and diesel, excluding jet fuel, EVERY DAY. Sounds like a lot of fuel, but it equates to just more than 1 gallon per day per vehicle. California motorists and businesses are major consumers of fossil fuel products. Even though there is a both projected growth in population from our current 38 million citizens, AND an increase in vehicle registrations from our current 30 million, the fuel demand is projected to decline slightly from the current 40 million gallons per DAY of gasoline and diesel, mostly as a result of continuous improvements in fuel efficiencies, and a slight impact by the 3% of vehicles that run on electricity or other alternative fuels. We already have AB32 and the LCFS in effect to control GHG emissions. REQUIRING California’s 38 million citizens to change their lifestyle appears to be bad public policy and possibly unenforceable on abusers that do not reduce their usage by 50%. It appears that a reduction from the current 40 million gallons of transportation fuels down to 20 million a day in just 15 years would be a drastic lifestyle change that could severely impact one of the world’s largest economies."

An Engineered Drought

"Now I'm not here to necessarily defend agriculture- but are you accounting for all the reductions they have had to make in recent year's prior to the Governor's executive order? I thought they were cutting before the rest of us. water crops as much as needed, water lawns sparingly."
