SACRAMENTO: Oct. 1, 2012 marks the one-year anniversary of Assembly Bill (AB) 109’s implementation, the Democrats’ early-release program for prison inmates. Dubbed as the “Criminal Justice Realignment” plan and billed as a “safe and secure” program to reduce our state prison population, AB 109 has proven to be anything but.

Up and down the state, the release of “non-violent, low-risk” inmates has been marked by dozens of reports that newly released inmates have carried out rapeattempted murderkidnappingrobberies, and stabbings. Inmates have also attacked police officers and stalked playgrounds. All of these offenses have been committed by inmates who were given early release under the auspices of “realignment.” (more…)

June 28, 2012, was the last day for the California legislature to pass a constitutional amendment to appear on November’s ballot to address pension reforms. Pension reforms are a critical issue to the sustainability of our way of life and yet the California voters will not be able to address this important issue in November. Here’s what happened.

The clock is ticking in the California State Capitol with the constitutional budget deadline looming this Friday.  But don’t count on your voices being heard at the State Capitol.

It’s business as usual for the majority party as they again shut out Californians from their plans to spend your money.  Democrat leaders are meeting behind closed doors to cobble together a multi-billion dollar spending plan.  Like you, the rest of Californians haven’t seen the budget either.  In all likelihood, we will only see the final product hours or even minutes before we are asked to vote on it.

Democrats Push No, No, No Budget: No jobs, no pensions, no spending cap (more…)

Statement by the State Senate Republican Caucus:

Despite repeated assurances that the current budget process would be public and transparent, the people of California have not been provided the adequate time to view budget related bills.  Until the budget and related measures are put into print for public review, Senate Republicans will not participate in any votes on these bills.   (more…)

Democrats Reverse Position on Low Performing Schools to Quash School Choice

Legislative Democrats who control the Assembly Education Committee rejected common sense legislation today authored by Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar).
