The best politics are those avoided. AB1208 goes to the Assembly

Posted on May 27, 2011


Rather than subject AB1208 to further debate by introducing the bill to the committee, thereby inviting both supporters and opposition to the bill to speak to the bill, it appears AB1208 was passed out of committee the easy way, on a consent calendar.

What else was passed out of committee was AB973 permitting common citizens to be heard on the issues of trial court budgets, reductions and closures. Not only did the judicial branch win today, the citizens won as well.
