SacTown Talks by The Nooner

Happy Tuesday! 

USE OF DEADLY FORCE: Governor Gavin Newsom yesterday signed AB 392 (Weber and McCarty). For CalMatters, Dan Morain and Laurel Rosenhall report "Newsom signed the legislation amid unusual fanfare, convening numerous legislators, family members of people who have died in police shootings and advocates including civil-rights leader Dolores Huerta in a courtyard at the Secretary of State’s building used in the past for inaugurations and other formal events."

The bill takes effect January 1. Byrhonda Lyons and Rosenhall have a video explainer of the changes in the law for CalMatters.

TOBACCO: This afternoon at 1:30, Assembly Health will hear AB 1639, Assemblymember Adam Gray's tobacco bill. Also up is Susan Rubio's SB 538 to require e-cigarette manufacturers to provide a written physical description and a photograph of each type of electronic cigarette sold.

Meanwhile, JUUL and Philip Morris were sued yesterday for racketeering in an Illinois federal court.

"PG&E Corp. shares plunged after a judge ruled that a jury can determine whether it should pay as much as $18 billion in damages to wildfire victims.

The California utility giant fell as much 29% to $10.11 in New York on Monday, the biggest intraday decline since the company signaled plans to file for bankruptcy in mid-January. PG&E's bonds also declined."

CVRA: Sharon Yoon-Hendricks reports in the Bee the local governments in the region are moving to by-district elections.

"The California Voting Rights Act, which took effect in 2003, prohibits at-large elections that prevent minority groups from electing candidates of their choice, or from influencing the outcome of an election, by means of diluting their votes across a municipality."

Davis City Council approved the move last week and Roseville is considering it.

VOTER FRAUD: Sam Stanton reports in the Bee that a Sacramento man is in federal court after being accused of voter fraud. The twist is a big Trump supporter. Stanton writes:

"On Monday in federal court in Sacramento, a man accused of coming to the United States from Mexico and voting illegally in elections for the past 20 years went on trial on charges of aggravated identity theft, voting by an alien and making a false statement on a passport application."

CANNABIS: In the Bee, Andrew Sheeler writes up a new report that forecasts that the legal cannabis market will exceed illicit sales in five years. Sheeler writes:

"The forecast, from BDS Analytics and Arcview Market Research, estimates that California’s total cannabis market is expected to earn about $12.8 billion this year, with $8.7 billion going to illicit operators and $3.1 billion to the state-authorized market.

However, in 2024 legal marijuana sales are forecast to reach $7.2 billion, surpassing the projected $6.4 billion in illicit cannabis sales."

WILDFIRES: In the Bee, Dale Kaslow and Ryan Sabalow report that insurance companies are dropping  customers or much-higher premiums in wildfire areas.
