Make a Difference Day

Katy Grimes: It should warm everyone’s heart that the Senate today approved “Make a Difference Day,” a power-packed Assembly resolution that designates October 23, 2010, and every fourth Saturday of October thereafter, as “Make a Difference Day.”

The author, Assemblyman Mike Eng, D-Monterey Park, notes in the resolution, “Serious social problems and difficult economic times have created exceptional challenges for many families and our nation,” and “Through both existing organization and individual action, Californians can take an active role in America’s economic recovery and improve their fellow citizens’ lives through volunteer service.”

Not normally one to beat dead horses, should legislators sincerely desire making a difference in this state, it can easily be done by passing a @&$#%! budget.

Originally introduced September 2009, following a third-reading in the Senate today, nearly one year later, the resolution passed 32-0.
