In case you were assuming that our legislators are working on the state’s broken budget, the following is from today’s Senate Daily File and is a Governmental Organization committee hearing:
GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATION WRIGHT, Chair 9:30 a.m. - John L. Burton Hearing Room (4203) (TELEVISED) MEASURES TO BE HEARD IN ORDER OF AUTHOR SIGN-IN S.B. No. 907 Liu. Office of Federal Funding Information and Assis- tance: establishment. S.B. No. 1044 Harman. Alcohol beverage control: events. S.B. No. 1090 Cedillo. Bingo: remote caller bingo. S.B.

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,

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.
