E-49

Good morning Noonerific people! I'm on the choo-choo heading to SF to speak at the Public Policy Institute of California. It's a beautiful morning to be on the train, with a daytime moon smiling down on us.

CA46 (Santa Ana): Attacks between Lou Correa and Bao Nguyen grow in the race to replace Loretta Sanchez [Martin Wisckol @ OCR] - “Fighting to narrow Lou Correa’s big lead in money and primary voters, congressional candidate Bao Nguyen is aggressively going after his fellow Democrat – and Correa is striking back.”

CA49 (Carlsbad): Why Democrats think this retired U.S. Marines colonel could unseat longtime San Diego County Rep. Darrell Issa [Phil Willon @ LAT] - “Douglas Applegate knew he might get an earful when he started knocking on doors in this solidly Republican town, once home to Richard Nixon’s Western White House.”

TWO OF EACH: Governor compares fighting climate change to building Noah’s Ark [David Siders @ SacBee] - “Gov. Jerry Brown, likening efforts to reduce climate change to the construction of Noah’s Ark, pressed forward Monday with an expansion of the state’s increasingly stringent state climate program, signing legislation requiring California to reduce emissions of fluorinated gases, black carbon and methane.” 

MOO: California governor backs rules on cow, landfill emissions [AP] - “California will begin regulating greenhouse-gas emissions tied to dairy cows and landfills under legislation signed Monday by Gov. Jerry Brown, escalating state efforts to fight climate change beyond carbon-based gases to include methane and other pollutants.”

#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to Assemblymembers Brian Dahle and Shirley Weber!

Proposition 57 Will Reduce Prison Population; Some Say Threatens Public Safety | The Press Democrat
PAUL PAYNE @
pressdemocrat.com
The measure is seen as a third step toward complying with a federal court order to reduce the state prison population, which now stands at about 128,000 inmates. Two previous measures, Proposition 47 in 2014, which reduced some felonies to misdemeanors, and a statewide prison realignment shifting inmates from prison to county jails in 2011 led to a drop in state prison rolls of tens of thousands of people.

Doe V. Antioch - Students Matter
studentsmatter.org
The California Constitution guarantees every student in California equal access to a quality education, including equal access to effective teachers. As the evidence presented in Vergara v. California overwhelmingly demonstrated, teacher quality is the most important in-school factor affecting student success. In order to ensure that all students are being taught by effective teachers, school districts need a fair and consistent way to evaluate educators. Originally enacted by the California Legislature in 1971, the Stull Act requires school districts to evaluate the performance of teachers and other certificated employees using multiple measures of performance, including student progress toward district and state academic content standards, as measured by standardized tests.
