THE Nooner for September 3, 2017
In my abbreviated Nooner yesterday, I didn't include all of the artices. The Apple OS update screwed up Chrome and it was freezing and the last save didn't go through! Thus, I have some catching up to do.
AURAL PLEASURE: On the California Politics Podast, John Myers, Liam Dillon, and Marisa Lagos talk about the week gone by.
END THE SUSPENSE! Patrick McGreevy and John Myers report on Friday's clearing of the Appropriations suspense files. "State lawmakers gutted or shelved dozens of bills for the year on Friday, including proposals to allow bars to stay open later, examine police practices, regulate marijuana and prohibit Californians from buying more than one rifle a month."
...KQED's Guy Mazorati and Marisa Lagos also have a wrap.
Lobbyist Chris Micheli runs the numbers:
On Friday, there were 363 bills that moved off the Suspense Files: 257 ABs to the Senate Floor and 106 SBs to the Assembly Floor
Pending on the Senate Floor are 481 measures and pending on the Assembly Floor are 306 measures, for a total of 787 measures pending final action before adjournment
KILL BILL: The Bee's Taryn Luna reports on the death of a bill that would seek to block new offshore oil leases. Another environmental perished as well when a bill supported by Gov. Brown, Sen Feinstein, and LG Newsom was parked in Approps. "It would have stalled a project by Cadiz Inc., a prolific campaign contributor which has sought the help of powerful politicians for decades. Cadiz this year celebrated the Trump administration’s reversal of two Obama-era directives that would have prevented it from using a federal railroad right-of-way to build a pipeline. Still, the threat of the state legislation caused its stock to plunge.
CEQA: The LAT's Liam Dillon looks at the last-minute effort in the Legislature to provids CEQA exempttions to the propsed new aarena for the Clippers and Olympics facilities.
MONEY MATTERS: John Myers looks at the end-session fundraising scramble. "While campaign fundraisers are held throughout the year, the past few days have been some of the busiest of 2017. Invitations posted online by the Capitol Morning Report, a statehouse subscription-based newsletter, show 70 legislative fundraising efforts were held in downtown Sacramento in the final two weeks of August."
GOV: The Merc News's Katy Murphy looks at the slim odds facing Republicans in next year's gubernatorial candidates and how it createsv\ a fundraising challege.
THE IE: The PE's Jeff Horseman reports on the rancor in the Riverside and San Bernardino Democratic parties that iis extension of the race for state party chair and Bernie vs. Hillary factions.
OPEN UP! Jazmie Ulloa reports in the Times on a proposed initiative filed Friday that woulde provide consumers greater access to the information about what about what personal information businesses are collecting online. "Backers of the initiative, dubbed the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, are aiming for a spot on the November 2018 statewide ballot. The measure would establish a consumer's right to request that a business disclose what categories of personal data it gathers, and to say no to the sale of any of that information without fear of losing services or facing discrimination."
AG: Farmers are concerned that they won't sufficient workers, and its not because of Trump. The Bee's Stephen Magagnini writes:
[Brad] Goehring, vice chairman of the California Association of Winegrape Growers, said he has turned to mechanization because of an acute shortage of farmworkers from Mexico. Other growers echoed his complaint, which has become a major theme this year for California’s behemoth agricultural industry as it pushes for immigration reform. Industry representatives say fears of immigration enforcement under the Trump administration are now exacerbating the situation, making workers afraid to take jobs in California fields.
