Rejection of Prop. 15 and approval of Prop. 22 critical to California’s future

While some ballot measures are more consequential than others, California voters are often presented with the opportunity to decide matters that will greatly alter the direction of the Golden State for years to come. To highlight two of them on the November ballot, Propositions 15 and 22 would have profound, long-term implications for the state, taxpayers, workers and consumers alike. Both are in close contests, according to recent polling. Proposition 15, known commonly as the split roll measur...

Gavin Newsom versus Mickey Mouse: John Phillips

California Gov. Gavin Newsom recently announced that large Golden State theme parks won’t be re-opening any time soon, and could be closed down until summer of 2021.  To date, these theme parks have already been shut down for seven months. According to reporting from the Wall Street Journal, reaching a “minimal” level of community spread requires California counties to register a seven-day average of less than one new daily case per 100,000 people and an average positive-test rate of less than 2...

Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation was contentious, but legitimate

On Monday, the United States Senate voted to confirm Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to serve on the United States Supreme Court. The vote was close, with 52 in favor and 48 opposed, including Republican Sen. Susan Collins, who is facing a close re-election bid next week. But as contentious as the nomination was, it’s far from the gloomy outcome some portrayed it as. “Today Republicans denied the will of the American people by confirming a Supreme Court justice through an illegitimate process — a...

Jackie Lacey-George Gascon race for LA district attorney remains heated

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey is fighting to keep her seat for a third term despite an aggressive challenge by self-styled reformer, former LAPD officer and San Francisco DA George Gascon and some progressive groups that have long called for her resignation. Lacey garnered significantly more voter support than Gascon in the March primary election but was ultimately unable to claim the majority necessary to avoid a runoff, pulling in 48.6% of the vote to Gascon’s...

California Warns Of Coronavirus Uptick, Names Vaccine Ethics Panel

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — California has seen an uptick in coronavirus-related hospitalizations and intensive care admissions in the last two weeks, prompting renewed warnings Tuesday from Gov. Gavin Newsom and the state’s top health official even as newly confirmed cases remain well below the recent surge across much of the nation. While officials set up a panel that will determine who gets vaccinated once one is available, progress remained such that the state allowed seven more counties...

California theme parks to Newsom: Why can’t we reopen?

Disney, Universal and other fed up California theme park operators that have seen their tourist hubs shuttered for more than seven months aimed their fury at Gov. Gavin Newsom and asked a point-blank question: Why can’t we reopen? “Parks have been opened throughout the country and world for months and we have seen no data indicating that COVID outbreaks are being traced back to theme parks,” California Attractions and Parks Association executive director Erin Guerrero said in a statement. “If th...

California’s oldest amusement park is preparing to become the first amusement park to reopen under the state’s new COVID-19 health and safety guidelines following a seven-month coronavirus closure. The 1907 Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk plans to reopen in November after Santa Cruz County moved into the orange/moderate tier 3 risk level under Gov.

Verily's COVID Testing Program Halted in San Francisco and Oakland

Amid fanfare in March, California officials celebrated the launch of a multimillion-dollar contract with Verily -- Google's health-focused sister company -- that they said would vastly expand COVID testing among the state's impoverished and underserved communities. But seven months later, San Francisco and Alameda counties -- two of the state's most populous -- have severed ties with the company's testing sites amid concerns about patients' data privacy and complaints that funding intended to bo...

Gov. Gavin Newsom: Death Penalty Is ‘Infected By Racism’

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — California’s process for imposing the death penalty “is now, and always has been, infected by racism,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday in a brief filed with the state Supreme Court. Newsom filed the brief in the case of Donte Lamont McDaniel, who was sentenced to death in 2009 for the murder of 33-year-old George Brooks and 52-year-old Annette Anderson. California juries can impose the death penalty if they find that “aggravating factors” outweigh “mitigating factor...

7 reasons California officials say major theme parks are too risky to reopen right now

Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and other large California theme parks are high-risk settings that could increase exposure to COVID-19 and lead to outbreaks prolonging the coronavirus pandemic, according to state officials. California issued long-awaited theme park reopening guidelines last week, but the new rules could leave small parks closed for weeks or months and major players like Disney and Universal unable to return until early 2021 or next summer.

The left wants to cancel Dianne Feinstein

Dianne Feinstein has been a fixture of California politics for 60 years, beginning with an appointment to the state’s then-separate parole board for women. To put that in context, her political career began seven years before Gov. Gavin Newsom was born. From the parole board, Feinstein moved to San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors (city council), to two unsuccessful runs for mayor, to acting mayor when Mayor George Moscone was assassinated in 1978, to two mayoral terms on her own, to an unsucces...

Court Ruling Could Kill Uber and Lyft in California

Just days before Californians themselves were set to decide on the matter, a state appeals court has ruled that app-based ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft must comply with state law AB5 and classify all of their drivers as employees rather than contractors. The ruling raises the possibility that the companies will simply end operations in the state altogether, both having stated previously that their business model depends on the flexibility of using contractors.The companies claim, and driv...

Snippy over Trump-Biden, California voters unload in hair salons, barbershops

Barbershops and beauty salons have always been about more than the shave and a haircut, or the mani-pedi. They’ve often been a refuge from the stresses and divisions of the outside world, a place to settle into a swivel chair and exhale. After all, you can’t really doom-scroll during a French manicure. But just as California salons are finally reopening after a punishing pandemic lockdown, the race between President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden is coming down to its final week — and...

California’s vague new financial regulation law

Assembly Bill 1864 didn’t get much media or public attention as it zipped through both houses of the Legislature on the last day of the 2020 session. Superficially, it appeared merely to reconfigure the state’s financial regulatory agencies into a new entity called the Department of Financial Protection and Innovation. However, those in California’s vast financial industry were paying lots of attention because the bill creates an entirely new regulatory regime with broad powers, including fines ...

Newsom vs. Disney: Pandemic depresses California’s fun businesses

One-third of California’s pandemic job losses can be tied to the decimation of the business of providing fun. Business limitations designed to slow the spread of coronavirus — plus the public’s unease about crowded spaces — has pummeled what had been a job-creation machine: the industries that serve locals and tourists seeking entertainment, lodging and dining. The state’s tough stance on reopening these businesses has led to a very public battle over theme park reopenings. The showdown features...
