Coronavirus Child Care Closures: Do Parents Still Have To Pay?

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — If your preschool or child care center shuts down for an extended period due to COVID-19, can they still make you pay tuition?

It appears some schools are revising their contracts to ensure parents do have to pay no matter what. “I said, ‘Are you sure this is actually enforceable?'” mom Ingrid told CBS13, recounti...

Inside The 11th Hour Meeting: Kamala Harris Support Team May Have Pushed Her To Top VP Spot

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — How did Joe Biden choose Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate?

Senator: Let’s stop another Wall Street takeover of California homes

By Nancy Skinner, Special to CalMatters The Great Recession sparked a massive transfer of wealth in California and the rest of the nation. It happened on courthouse steps around the country when an estimated 5 million U.S. families lost their homes due to foreclosure. Many of those foreclosed homes were sold in bulk at auctions, and for the first time, large numbers of single-family homes were snatched up by Wall Street firms. This corporate scheme led to Wall Street establishing a new and wildl...

Reject Proposition 19, a cynical special interest money grab

California counties should implement the good part of Proposition 19; the voters should handle the bad part by turning down the ballot measure this November. Portability — taking your property tax bill with you when you move from one California county to another — rightly protects people from enormous spikes in taxes. Property owners are protected from dramatic tax increases by Proposition 13, passed in 1978, limiting increases to 2 percent a year. Portability would apply that limit even for mos...

The myopia of the Black Lives Matter movement: John Stossel

Black Lives Matter protests led many people to want to do something useful to reduce racial injustice. Racial justice groups are being flooded with money. Big companies made multimillion-dollar donations. “Bad idea,” says Black radio host Larry Elder. “It is condescending… and not helpful. I urge white people to chill. Stop helping us, because you’re making things worse!” Making things worse, he says, because it supports the activists’ claim that “Blacks are victims of racism. (But) if racism we...

If Harris heads to DC, Southern California could loom large in the scramble to fill her seat

Now that Democrat Joe Biden has chosen Rep. Kamala Harris as his running mate, it hasn’t dampened the political stakes in Southern California. Far from it. The political drama will likely be profound, especially if the ticket ultimately snags the White House. That would mean a U.S. senator would need replacing — with a poignant tumbling of political dominoes to follow. Perhaps the most Google’d question in the state on Tuesday — how would the U.S. Senate seat get filled? Should the Democrats win...
