Upward Mobility at Cal State LA

 

Happy Tuesday! The toasty trend continues...today and tomorrow are Flex Alert Days statewide, with power managers closely following supply and demand on the grid.

The massive fire outside Yosemite National Park has consumed 35,587 acres and is 25% contained. The park is still open. 

WHOA:  Assemblyman Ed Chau (D-Monterey Park) had to be escorted by security out of the Secretary of State's office, reports Dan Morain for CALmatters. He was demanding a change in the ballot designation for his Republican opponent Burton Brink, which is “retired sheriff’s sergeant.” You can't use "former," but retired is allowed, but if doing so, you can't list another occupation.

$$$: Moody's changed its view on California's credit rating, raising it from "stable" to "positive," although didn't change the actual rating from Aa3. From the report:

The Aa3 incorporates California's position as a massive and diverse economy that has performed strongly relative to the rest of the nation over the past several years. This performance supported robust revenue growth and the accumulation of healthy liquidity. The rating balances the state's improved financial position against its exposure to a highly volatile revenue structure and its vulnerability to changes in federal policy and funding, especially with regards to healthcare. The rating further considers long-term liability and fixed cost burdens that are slightly higher than state medians, as well as a legislative supermajority requirement to raise new revenue. 

As the state goes to the borrowing market for the road and transportation ("gas tax") and many other infrastructure projects, Moody's positive comments are well-timed.

VOTER GUIDE: Secretary of State Alex Padilla posted the Voter Guide this morning. Public inspection runs through Aiuguat 13.

BEHIND THE WALLS: In the Bee, Adam Ashton looks at the surge in sexual misconduct cllaims in California's prisons:

California prison inmates filed 1,150 complaints last year alleging they were mistreated sexually behind bars, a 29 percent increase over 2016.

The numbers are striking, but victim advocates and state prison officials say the trend might actually reflect greater confidence among inmates that their complaints will be taken seriously since the department adopted policies complying with a federal rape reporting rule.

For Capitol Weekly, Jessica Hice looks at the bill to end daylight savings time (AB 807), which will be a November ballot measure. If approved by the voters, federal approval will be required.

POTUS: Joel Fox looks at the uphill battle Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti has if he decides to run for President:

Only three men who served as mayor ever became president: Andrew Johnson of little Greeneville, Tennessee; Grover Cleveland of Buffalo, New York; and Calvin Coolidge of Northampton, Massachusetts. All three went on to become governors before making president.

THE OTHER CAPITOL: Oakland congresswoman Barbara Lee  has joined the campaign to be the next congressional Democrat Caucus chair, reports Sarah D. Wire in the Times.She joins Linda Sanchez (D-Whittier) in the race.

TRONC'D: The newsroom at the New York Daily News was slashed in half by parent corporation TRONC, the former parent company of the Los Angeles Times and San Diego Union Tribune, reports the AP.  "The paper was sold to Chicago Tribune owner Tronc Inc. last year for $1, with the buyer assuming liabilities and debt.

Revenue slid 22% between 2014 and 2016, and the paper had already been letting people go. Tronc declined to say how many journalists lost their jobs Monday.

What a disaster. Thank you Patrick Soon-Shiang for rescuing the LAT and SDUT.

DISNEY: In the Times, Hugo Martin reports that a tentative contract agreement has been reached in a contentious labor battle in Anaheim between Disneyland Resort and area businesses:

“The Disneyland Resort and Master Services Council are proud to have reached a tentative agreement, which we are hopeful will be ratified later this week,” the park and the council that represents the workers said in a joint statement. “We have had a successful history of working together since Disneyland Park opened in 1955, and this contract continues that shared commitment to cast members.”
