My search for answers to questions about the death of Tom Schweich continues three days after I published a piece in which I raised the question, Is Investigative Journalism Dead in Missouri? Click on image above to read article published Friday. The headline of that piece reflects my disdain for St. And so I continue.
Last year we were permitted to provide the worst 25 bills. This year the list could have been double that. But, we were once again constrained to 20 bills the Governor should veto.
We did not include some worthy bills as they have already been signed, as they either were voted on some time ago or were budget trailer bills Gov.
Brown signed upon receipt. I want to thank my Sacramento Capitol Office staff for doing an outstanding job of assisting me in my research on all the bills that came before me for a vote. I also want to thank them for their willingness to improve on our technologies to stay organized on the massive volume that occurs with the legislative process.
They kept my sanity intact the last few weeks. I also want to thank Jacob Ashendorf, who served in my Capitol Office the past few months, but recently accepted a job offer in D. He is now my fifth staff member to join the Health and Human Services executive team. This year we also had the privilege of hosting a Capitol Fellow.
James Moore, a Harvard grad who played basketball in high school, made me not feel tall.
So, that offensive experience on the court came in handy. Thus the task of trying to cull through those bills and single out just the twenty worst is not easy. I will add that this session in particular was over-the-top with noxious legislation, and limiting this list to twenty bills was no easy task.
We believe that media perspectives describing as a rage reaction against the new Trump Administration are also accurate.
From the first day of Session last December, the Democrats provided an anti-Trump resolution nearly every week and emphasized a strong move to the left on policies that will hurt California, prohibiting the state from leading the nation to prosperity. What was most stunning was how unabashed the public employee unions were in pushing through massive, if not coercive, requests to strengthen their declining membership numbers.

We present them to you in numerical order. This will lead to reduced production at a time when the state economy is starting to falter. Instead of helping employees, an unknown number of their jobs could be killed.
We should be avoiding government-mandated prevailing wages, not increasing their requirements. This legislation would significantly increase circumstances where prevailing wages would be mandated.
That violates the religious conscience of many employers and employees. This is anti-democratic and would silence voters pursuing pro-growth land-use decisions, usurping local control by mandating changes in local land use decision-making via state law.
This bill prohibits employers from inquiring about or using a prior criminal conviction of an prospective employee as a factor in whether to make them a conditional offer of employment.
This is another bureaucratic hassle for businesses, increasing costs and, in the end, killing job opportunities because of increased legal liabilities and administrative burdens for employers.
Gender discrimination already is against state and federal law. This is a tax on mobile home parks and increases regulations on them. It could encourage owners to bulldoze the parks and turn them into condos. How can we be reducing transparency? Yet this bill would prohibit local governments from sharing with the public documents concerning labor negotiations.
We should be doing everything in our power to increase government transparency for our taxpayers. Pointless red tape to give food unions an edge on the new "gig economy" by increasing the costs of doing business for companies that send food ingredients to your home for you to prepare.
Requiring that the Department of Social Services release private information of registered home care aides is a blatant invasion of privacy. It is also a shameless attempt by public employee unions to increase their membership. Would raise taxes on real-estate transactions by hundreds of millions of dollars annuallythereby discouraging home purchases.
Voters just enacted the Proposition 1 water bond in California has prioritized defiance to the federal government over its duty to govern responsibly and protect its citizens.
