From the Capitol

 Happy Humpday! Beautiful chilly morning here! Is the State of the Union over yet? Wild to hear that some Tahoe resorts closed for too much snow yesterday and traffic reports this morning were about ice near Gilroy.

TOP COP: Attorney General Xavier Becerra gave the Spanish language Democratic response to the State of the Union last night and warned President Trump that he'll sue if the President declares a national emergency to build a border wall, report Jazmine Ulloa and Patrick McGreevy for the LAT. Becerra's speech was from C.K. McClatchy High School, his alma mater in Sacramento. The Bee's Marcos Breton was not impressed with Becerra's kid gloves.  [Video]

If you didn't see Jimmy Kimmel last night, he had an alternative Latino give the Democratic response--Guillermo.

USE OF FORCE: Well, negotiations over a compromise bill to reduce police use-of-force have broken down, reports Capitol Public Radio's Ben Adler. There will thus be two bills and lots of lobbying dough to be made.

After months of negotiations, law enforcement and civil liberties groups are introducing rival police use-of-force bills.

“We worked all these months, and ultimately it came down to where we both decided to go our separate ways,” said Brian Marvel, the president of PORAC, a peace officer union federation.

So, if you didn't get a piece of the PG&E action, there's still hope.

CVRA: Chron legal eagel Bob Egelko writes that a federal judge has rejected a challenge to the California Voting Rights Act, "which has required numerous local governments to switch from at-large to district elections to empower their minority populations. But the conservative who won a U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down a key section of the federal voting-rights law says the California case is headed for higher courts." 

"California courts upheld the law in 2006, rejecting arguments that it was racially discriminatory, and the U.S. Supreme Court denied review. But [UC Irvine law professor Rick] Hasen said the high court might take a different view now in light of its 2015 ruling on the federal Voting Rights Act."

Thomas Saenz, president of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, which filed arguments in support of the state law, said the ruling “appropriately distinguished California’s attempt to remedy and prevent racial discrimination in voting from discrimination itself.”

As we see city councils change across Southern California in particular, the writing is on the wall as to why CVRA was needed.
