The legislature strikes back…

Posted on March 4, 2011


An increasingly agitated state legislature voted Thursday to subject the AOC to the public contract code EXCEPT for construction. Assembly Bill AB314 would subject court construction and the court construction contractors to common sense laws that protect the public trust and public money. This is the first step in moving court construction over to responsible government. Please see our update below the video-

This tune goes out to Assemblyman Jeff Gorell and his legislative director Samuel Chung, for if neither of you had the courage to call a spade a spade, this would not have been possible. Next, we highly recommend that the state legislature quickly pass the trial courts rights act.

Thank you for showing California’s judicial branch where “Hotel California’s” door is.


The battle for anti-public corruption laws over court construction funds continues. While it currently is not scheduled for a hearing, we’re going to ask that you pick up your telephone, reach out and touch someone on the Business & Professions Committee by calling a legislative aide or committee member.
