Government turns homelessness into big business

SACRAMENTO – At a leftist event years ago, I heard a speaker disparage economist Adam Smith and his idea that a nation can best prosper by letting individuals make their own decisions. With the Bernie Sanders candidacy on the rise, anti-market attitudes have gained steam — even among people who express them on nifty electronic gadgets and do so, presumably, with a full belly. Attendees seemed to find the Smith approach crazy. Granted, the “invisible hand” of the marketplace is, well, invisible. ...

Business as usual as lawmakers introduce over 2,200 bills

California legislators introduced more than 2,200 bills by the Feb. 21 bill-introduction deadline, which strikes us as a compelling argument for a part-time Legislature. Most bills expand government authority. Others tweak the existing code or are “statement” bills that mainly make a political point. Perhaps lawmakers have too much time on their hands. The largest set of bills would address problems caused by last year’s passage of Assembly Bill 5, which limits companies from hiring independent ...

Paying Meth Users To Stop? Former Addicts Say It Won’t Always Work

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A potential new California bill could be a last-ditch effort to curb the state’s growing methamphetamine problem, offering addicts vouchers or cash incentives to stop using.
