Fox & Hounds Daily, Oct. 8, 2014
Sr. Advisor, Berggruen Institute on Governance, Think Long Committee for California Governor Brown signs SB 1253 with representatives of the initiative reform coalition. The author, Nathan Gardels, is on the far left. The passage of SB1253 by a wide bi-partisan margin in the Legislature, and its signature into law by Governor Jerry Brown, marks a milestone for Californias 100 year- ...

NEW: Initiative reform " one bridge short
CalWatchdog, Oct. 4, 2014
October 4, 2014 - By Joel Fox As someone who participated in the working group on initiative reform package that ended up as SB1253[1]by state Sen. Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, andsigned by Gov. JerryBrown last week --I can say the bill is, well, okay as far as it goes. But to invert a title used for a World War II book,A Bridge Too Far[2]--which tells the story of the Allies trying to go ...

Ben Boychuk: Initiative reform doesn’t fix the real problem
Sacramento Bee - Opinion, Oct. 4, 2014
Whats wrong with Californias initiative and referendum process? Plenty. Voters often have too many questions to decide mercifully, just six this November on subjects too arcane or too technical to grasp easily. Id wager that two-thirds of statewide ballot measures would be unnecessary with a responsible Legislature and a courageous governor.Instead we have the representatives we deserve and a ...

NEW: Brown struggles to hit education stride
CalWatchdog, Oct. 3, 2014
October 3, 2014 - By James Poulos With education becoming a major state issue just in time for the election, Gov. Jerry Brown has found himself in an uncharacteristic position. The often unflappable governor, who has prided himself on following the beat of his own drum, has been ensnared in an ongoing debate among Democrats. At issue: How to recover their footing in the wake of Judge Rolf Treus ...

Los Angeles Times - Editorial, Sept. 30, 2014
California will have the nation's first statewide ban on disposable plastic bags under a measure signed Tuesday by Gov. Jerry Brown, who also expanded gun controls and personal privacy protections in an eclectic final flurry of bill signings for the year.The governor rejected several new ethics proposals, passed in the wake of corruption scandals that have plagued the state Senate, saying the ...

California's initiative process could become more enlightened under this new law
Los Angeles Times - Editorial, Sept. 30, 2014
It turns out that a legislative hearing can be simultaneously enlightening and pointless. Take, for example, Monday's hearing in Sacramento on Proposition 46, the measure on the Nov. 4 ballot to increase the cap on medical malpractice damages, and Thursday's on Proposition 47, the initiative to change criminal sentencing.The numerous committees conducting the joint hearings can't add to or change ...
