California school reopening row nears climax

California’s management of the COVID-19 pandemic has been, to say the least, erratic with ever-changing state decrees on business openings and closings and personal conduct and, most recently, a chaotic rollout of vaccinations. There has been, however, one constant. The state’s public schools quickly shut down when Gov. Gavin Newsom declared an emergency and assumed one-man command of the crisis and with few exceptions have remained shuttered ever since. The shutdown, coupled with other restrict...

Pandemic’s Uneven Impact Highlights Budget Issues In California

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — In his first year in office, California Gov. Gavin Newsom had a $21.5 billion surplus to spend. In his second year, he had to make up a $54.3 billion shortfall.

LA County leaders to once again take up concept of removing Sheriff Alex Villanueva

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Nov. 10, were set to consider an effort to investigate ways to remove Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva from office. The effort was delayed on Tuesday, Oct. 27, after its main sponsor on the Board of Supervisors offered to give more time to his colleagues to weigh it.

Motion to study options for removing Sheriff Alex Villanueva on hold

An effort to investigate ways to remove Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva from office was delayed on Tuesday, Oct. 27, after its main sponsor on the Board of Supervisors offered to give more time to his colleagues to weigh it. While no action was taken, there were early glimpses at what could be a remarkable debate — pitting a sheriff who calls him the most transparent in the county’s history against a board intent on exerting what it says is its rightful authority to manage him.

Does ‘business interruption insurance’ apply in a COVID-19 pandemic?

In March and April, as businesses were suddenly forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many business owners asked whether there was insurance coverage for the losses caused by the shutdown. Specifically, business owners asked whether “business interruption” and “civil authority” coverages typically found in Commercial General Liability policies potentially covered the staggering losses associated with the shutdowns. Business interruption coverage covers lost profits when a business cannot...

New California eviction protections come with a wish — federal funds

California lawmakers’ stopgap measure on evictions has a wish built into it — a Democratic victory in November. The emergency measure signed Monday provides some statewide protection through January but drew mixed reviews and protests demanding more aid for the state’s most vulnerable renters. About 150 community activists demonstrated Tuesday afternoon in front of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, calling for an end to all evictions during the pandemic. Gov. Gavin Newsom, lawmakers and s...

California’s economy faces a tough slog

It now seems like ancient history, but only a few months ago, California’s economy was roaring. “By any standard measure, by nearly every recognizable metric, the state of California is not just thriving but, in many instances, leading the country, inventing the future, and inspiring the nation,” Gov. Gavin Newsom boasted in February’s state of the state address. “We remain the fifth-largest economy in the world — enjoying 118 consecutive months of net job growth, some 3.4 million jobs created s...

New Stimulus Bill—What You Need to Know About a Second Stimulus Check, $200 Unemployment Benefits, PPP and More

On July 27, 2020, Republicans put forth their new stimulus package proposal of approximately $1 trillion called the HEALS Act (the Health, Economic Assistance Liability Protection & Schools Act). The Democrats had previously proposed a $3 trillion+ stimulus package under the “Heroes Act,” but Republicans had rejected it as too broad and too big. There have been so many news stories and statements about a new stimulus package that it’s difficult to discern what will actually become law. This arti...

What’s the end game for the state budget?

Drafting a state budget for California is always a difficult process, given the state’s diverse and often conflicting interests, but it became infinitely more so during the century’s first decade. Although Democrats controlled the Legislature, Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger was governor, the state was slammed by what was then the worst recession since the Great Depression, and the budget required a two-thirds legislative vote, which gave minority Republicans leverage. Those impediments often m...

California Legislature Approves Budget, But Changes Coming

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Facing an estimated $54.3 billion budget deficit because of the coronavirus, California lawmakers on Monday approved a state spending plan that rejects most of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s proposed cuts to public education and health care with the hope that Congress will send the state more money by Oct. 1 to cover the shortfall. But the budget likely won’t become law because it does not have the backing of Newsom, who has the power to sign, veto or alter whatever the Legislatur...
