With 2020 Census coming — citizenship question or not — there’s a push to count every head in Inland Empire

As debate rages over whether the 2020 Census should include a citizenship question, supervisors in Riverside and San Bernardino counties are joining an effort to sure every Inland resident is counted in the upcoming survey. The boards of supervisors in both counties recently voted to join a “complete count committee” for the Inland Empire.

Wasteful Medicaid spending prevents government from fulfilling core responsibilities

Few states can waste public healthcare dollars like California. According to a recent state audit, Medi-Cal — the Golden State’s Medicaid program, which covers about 13 million people — improperly spent more than $4 billion on thousands of ineligible enrollees from 2014 to 2017. At least one of those ineligible enrollees had been dead for years. Such waste is commonplace in Medicaid programs nationwide. Every year, the healthcare entitlement for low-income Americans wastes billions of dollars on...

Why can’t the U.S. Census ask a very simple question?

Should the 2020 U.S. Census ask about citizenship? Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross decided that it should, and his decision triggered an explosion of legal challenges. Last week, a federal judge in New York ruled that the question may not be asked. U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman wrote, “Secretary Ross’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census—even if it did not violate the Constitution itself—was unlawful for a multitude of independent reasons and must be set aside.” Furman sa...

Will helping fix the teachers strike help Eric Garcetti become president?

In some potentially important ways, Eric Garcetti’s presidential hopes got a lift Tuesday morning when the Los Angeles mayor helped end the teachers strike in the nation’s second-largest school district. But Garcetti’s role in the settlement between officials of Los Angeles Unified and the teachers union is hardly a springboard to the White House — and it might even have a downside, political observers said in interviews. The pluses are clear for Garcetti, who is thought to be preparing to launc...

Surprising restaurant finds in North Hollywood, Sherman Oaks and Studio City
