THE Nooner for August 27, 2017
Happy Sunday! I changed up my Sunday routine, and am instead writing from the patio of Sac Nat Foods Coop. It's going to be a hot one today, so being outside at 8am is about the only choice.
I spent much of the night watching the news out of Texas. I only have one family member in the immediate path, and things seem to be looking okay as it shifts from a wind to rain event. As many times that I have been there, I never realized that Houston was a bayou city. Of course, unlike New Orleans, it is not a municipal bath tub.
The good news is that my aunt--the one family member in the middle of the storm--is fine and hasn't lost power. The ranch critters should also be okay, but we send Nooner well-wishes to all along the Texas gulf coast.
AURAL PLEASURE: John Myers is joined by the LAT's Melanie Mason and KQED's Marisa Lagos to talk about the Assembly Republican leadership shakeup and the reshaping of the universal health care debate on the California Political Podcast.
FROM THE DESK OF THE DEAN: George Skelton writes in the Times that the GOP used the old playbook in dumping Assembly Republican Leader Chad Mayes last week. “The minority party removes its leaders faster than the majority because there’s no reason to be happy,” says Republican consultant Richard Temple, who once worked for five Assembly GOP leaders within 12 years. “They have no power.”
THE WORK AHEAD: Lobbyist Chris Micheli of Aprea & Michel writes:
Based upon a rough count, there are 436 pending measures on the Assembly and Senate Floors (292 on Senate Floor and 144 on Assembly Floor) as of this Monday’s floor session (August 28).
In addition, there are about 511 pending measures in the Senate and Assembly Appropriations Committees (347 in Senate and 164 in Assembly). These figures are for measures being heard next week, followed by those on the Suspense Files.
There are 19 measures pending in other committees (14 in Senate and 5 in Assembly).
So, there are roughly 966 measures to be acted upon during the final three weeks of Session.
