Upward Mobility at Cal State LA

 

CA48 (Huntington Beach): The race to be the Democrat taking on Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R) between Hans Keirstead and Harley Rouda now has Rouda up by 40 votes. That's essentially the last close legislative race among the competitive districts.

QUALIFIED: The initiative sponsored by private ambulance tompanies to amend the state Labor Code to require ambulance employees to remain on-call during their lunch break has qualified for the November ballot. Opponents, generally AFSCME, that represent most AMR employees, will argue that it is a reduction in staffing as it allows fewer rigs in the region. The proponent is lobbyist Sean Henschel, who represents American Medical Response.

THE BORDER CRISIS: Gubernatorial candidate John Cox (R) yesterday said that he is opposed to separating children from parents who cross the border illegally and called for quick congressional action, reports Patrick McGreevy for the Times.

Parse it however you will, as it's really not different than the Administration's position expressed by Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen yesterday, so some of the news I've read makes it sound like he's separating himself from President Trump, who endorsed Cox for governor. However, Cox is putting it on Congress, as is the White House, looking to bundle the "separation" issue with the two GOP immigration bills (one more conservative than the other, but both with $25 billion for the border wall). The issue is that Senate Democrats will filibuster any bill with the border wall funding in it, and President Trump will veto any bill without it.

It's a stalemate among adult politicians, and young kids are paying the price.

THREE STATES: John Cox also came out against the November ballot measure to divide California into three states, reports Melody Gutierrez in the Chron. “Tim Draper has alerted people to the mismanagement of the state, which I agree with him on, but I don’t think that’s the answer,” said Cox, a San Diego-area businessman. “We need to do a better job of managing the state, which is exactly what I’m going to do.”

Speaking of Three States, Chuck McFadden looks at the proposal for Capitol Weekly.

The impact on both private and public organizations would be dramatic.  Wells Fargo and Bank of America, for instance, would find themselves engaged in new and additional interstate commerce with its rules and regulations; trucking companies would face the same situation, and so would hardware and department store chains, to name just a few.

We’d lose some bragging rights.  The University of California system, with 238,000 students and more than 190,000 faculty and staff, has won a total of 62 Nobel prizes.  Its 10 campuses would be divided up among the three new states:  Northern California would have five, new California would have two and Southern California would have three.

Before the split-up took effect, lawmakers and staff would have to do a great deal of pick-and-shovel work allotting debt and distributing assets such as tax proceeds. Each new state would have to write a constitution.

Fun to think about. Not gonna happen.

BUDGET: The LAT's John Myers reports that the Legislature sent nine budget-related "trailer" bills to the governor yesterday, although it wasn't without significant debate. The biggest critiism was on the health trailer that did not expand health care eligibility for adults in the United States illegally. Undocumented children are already covered. Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) was visible angry and spoke passionately against the bill, and was the lone Democrat to vote against the bill.

More trailer bills next week. Since these are "acts related to the budget," they require a simple majority, not a supermajority.

TOP-TWO: Former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Congressman Ro Khanna (D-Fremont) have an op-ed in the Washington Post defending the top-two primary system. "We’re from different parties, we don’t agree on every issue, and we don’t bench-press the same amount — yet. But when it comes to California’s open primary system, where the two candidates who get the most votes advance to the general election, regardless of their political party, we see eye to eye: That current system, in place since 2012, works best because it puts the voters first."

Why WaPo on a state issue? It's targeted at House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who have both publicly criticized top-two.

Top-two is here to stay, whether you favor it or hate it. Once choice is given, it's very hard to take that choice away.
