Important government hearings

by CalWatchdog Staff | March 23, 2010 6:19 am

In case you were assuming that our legislators are working on the state’s broken budget, the following is from today’s SenateĀ Daily File and is a Governmental Organization committee hearing:

                            GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATION
                                  WRIGHT, Chair
                  9:30 a.m. - John L. Burton Hearing Room (4203)
S.B. No.   907  [1]Liu. Office of Federal Funding Information and Assis-
                tance: establishment.
S.B. No.  1044  [2]Harman. Alcohol beverage control: events.
S.B. No.  1090  [3]Cedillo. Bingo: remote caller bingo.
S.B. No.  1096  [4]Wiggins. Alcoholic beverages: tied-house restrictions.
S.B. No.  1231  [5]Corbett. Public contracts: state agency: sweatshop labor:
                slave and sweat free code of conduct.
                                  PAVLEY, Chair
                               9:30 a.m. - Room 112
S.B. No.   889  [6]Aanestad. Vacuum or suction dredge equipment: permits:
                refund. (Urgency)
S.B. No.   904  [7]Hollingsworth. Hunting: commercial hunting clubs.
S.B. No.  1034  [8]Ducheny. Archaeological resources: civil penalties.
S.B. No.  1058  [9]Harman. Game hunting.
S.B. No.  1103  [10]Aanestad. Surface mining: idle mines: low gross exemp-
S.B. No.  1173  [11]Wolk. Recycled water.
S.B. No.  1349  [12]Cogdill. Endangered species: experimental populations.
S.J.R. No.   18 [13]Simitian. Marine aquaculture.

Notice the “Bingo” and “Sweatshop” bills — I know how important it is to regulate those dangerous Bingo games.

Don’t we already have sweatshop laws?

Then of course, in the Natural Sources committee, the big game hunting and hunting clubs, a scourge on society, must be dealt with in the California State Senate.

And not to leave the Assembly out, from the Assembly File hearing[14],


10 a.m. – State Capitol,Room 447


Measure: Author: Summary:

A.B. No. 1693[15] Ma. Building standards: code adoption cycle.

A.B. No. 1736[16] Ma. Structural Fumigation Enforcement Program.

A.B. No. 1996[26] Hill. Chiropractors: license renewal fee.

S.B. No. 700[27] Negrete McLeod. Healing arts: peer review.

Healing arts, Chiropractors, home inspections:energy audits — all pressing business, I am sure.

What about the $25 billion deficit, 12.5 percent unemployment, the 40,000 acres of farmland in the central valley that is being deprived of water where there is also 40 percent unemployment?

This is not the people’s business.
