THE SAUSAGE FACTORY: Sneakiness abounded on last, hectic night of California Legislature’s session [Dan Walters @ SacBee] - “The last night of the Legislature’s biennial session on Aug. 31 was, as usual, a hectic free-for-all. Although full-time lawmakers had been in session for 21 months, dozens – and perhaps hundreds – of bills still needed final votes.” 

MORE SAUSAGE: The 'tortuous and sordid history' of a state incentive for a powerful energy upstart [Melanie Mason @ LAT] - “Lawmakers agreed last month to extend a vital subsidy for the Silicon Valley company, one that makes its pricey power generators more attractive to buyers such as hospitals, data centers and mega-retailers. For Bloom and its industry cohorts, the win marked the end of a hard-fought slog against powerful adversaries including utilities and labor groups.”
