‘The California Dream Is For All’: Gov. Newsom Focuses State Of The State Address On Homeless Crisis

SACRAMENTO (AP) – California should lower the legal bar for providing forced treatment to the mentally ill and building more homeless shelters, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Wednesday in his second State of the State address. He took the unusual step of devoting most of the annual speech to just two related issues: affordable housing shortfalls and homelessness. They have quickly eclipsed the state’s other problems since the Democratic governor took office a year ago. He called it “a disgrace, that the...

In deep-blue LA, Trump gives faithful a chance to cheer

Tuesday, Feb. 18, was a rare moment for Southern California’s Trump faithful. One by one — some wearing red “Make America Great Again” hats, some wearing patriotic jackets and pins, most wearing big grins — they climbed off the buses on the tarmac at LAX. They were ushered into an area that would become the “meet and greet’ zone for President Donald Trump. This was the stop-and-shift spot for this whirlwind fourth trip to LA as president– he’d hustle off Air Force One and board Marine One for a ...

Housing costs, migration expected to crimp Southern California’s economy

Southern California’s economy remains strong, but it’s expected to lag slightly behind the state through 2021, according to a new report.

California Bill Bars Insurers From Declining Fire Coverage

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Amid mounting cries of California homeowners being denied wildfire insurance in high-risk areas, lawmakers want to require insurance companies to cover all existing homes, as long as they meet new safety standards. The measure, coming after years of deadly fires causing insurers to turn down more customers, would also require insurance companies to give homeowners financial incentives for fire safety upgrades. Existing homes that meet a new state standard for “fire-hard...
