Happy Humpday! The cooling trend in SacTown starts today, with a high of 92. By Friday, the high is forecasted to be only 79. Brrrr... 

There is not much in the way of political and policy news today. I think reporters are still hungover from Monday night's debate. Aren't we all.

PROP 58: Bilingual education measure has broad support from California voters [Alexei Koseff @ SacBee] - "A new Field/IGS Poll of likely voters found 69 percent support Proposition 58, which would reverse a mandate to teach English learners in English-only classes, and make it easier for schools to start bilingual programs, while just 14 percent are opposed. The broad support crosses party and racial lines." 

[polling memo]

PROP 55: Would Proposition 55 increase California’s losses to other states? [Dan Walters @ SacBee] - "The temporary [tax] hike did not cause a noticeable outward flow, despite some anecdotal accounts. But Jerry Nickelsburg, who studies California’s economy for UCLA’s Anderson Forecast, suggests in a new report that making the nation’s highest marginal income tax rates at least semi-permanent could trigger flight."

PROP 66: Critics doubt California has enough lawyers for death penalty speed-up [Alexei Koseff @ SacBee] - "With cases taking two decades or more to wind their way through the appeals process, both supporters and critics of California’s death penalty agree the system is broken. But opponents of Proposition 66, the November initiative aimed at speeding up executions, argue that proposed changes to shorten the timeline for appointing lawyers and filing petitions are convoluted and unfeasible."

GROUNDED: California limits state travel to North Carolina over its ‘bathroom bill’ [Adam Ashton @ SacBee] - "Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed a bill that prohibits state agencies from compelling their employees to travel to states with laws that allow discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity."

NOPE! 'Veto Gunmageddon' group fails to qualify ballot measures to repeal new gun control laws [Patrick McGreevy] - "Three days before the deadline, the head of a referendum drive aimed at overturning six new gun control laws announced Tuesday it will fall far short of collecting enough signatures to qualify the measures for the ballot."

GRANNY! California eases restrictions on ‘granny units’ [Queenie Wong @ MercNews] - "In a move proponents say will help ease the Bay Area’s housing crisis, Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed Senate Bill 1069, making the so-called “granny units” easier and less expensive to build throughout the state." 

RELIEF: Dying Californians will get to seek experimental drugs [Jeremy B. White @ SacBee] - "The governor signed this year’s similar version, Assembly Bill 1668, after it won broad support in the Legislature. It would allow drug manufacturers to offer treatments not yet approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration if a patient has exhausted other FDA-sanctioned treatment options and has approval from two physicians."

Joe Rodota and Jeff Kilnk have updated their scorecard of newspaper endorsements of the 17 measures on the November 8 ballot.

SF supes limit business with firms in states with anti-LGBT laws
sfgate.com
San Francisco would no longer enter into contracts with companies based in states that bar civil-rights protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, under legislation passed unanimously by the Board of Supervisors Tuesday. The legislation is an effort to increase pressure on three states with laws that limit transgender rights: When the legislation was proposed in April, it told The Chronicle, “We understand the concerns expressed by the city and county of San Francisco, and Bank of America has been very clear in calling for the repeal of North Carolina’s (law) based on concerns about the impact of the legislation on our employees and our customers.” A North Carolina law, HB 2, bans people from using restrooms in schools and other public buildings that don’t match their birth sex, even if it matches their gender identity. A Mississippi law, HB1523, allows private businesses and religious groups to deny services to LGBT people if doing so would violate their religious beliefs. The North Carolina law has generated the most backlash, including the announcement earlier this month that the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Atlantic Coast Conference were moving championship games out of the state in opposition. [...] on Tuesday, Supervisor Jane Kim introduced a resolution urging the city to explore the possibility of annexing 684 acres in Brisbane scheduled for a massive commercial development because it includes no new housing. Kim said she believes the real reason behind the housing prohibition is that Brisbane doesn’t want new residents voting in the city. [...] on Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors approved a nearly $5 million settlement with a motorcyclist who was badly injured in 2013 when a fire truck driven by a city firefighter suspected of being drunk slammed into him. The $4.99 million settlement with Jack Frazier caps an embarrassing episode that ensnared the Fire Department and the Police Department that botched the investigation.
