It's a bill to begin a study.

California should first concentrate on the displaced natives (the ones that survived the CA Genocides).

They'll be competing with illegals for the handouts. Good luck with that.

Does CA have to file a lawsuit against Spain to get some of that money back? I mean, Spain did spend 200-300 years before us taking care of what would be CA.

Gas tax in Cali going up by another 3 cents or so. This puts it over 50 cents a gallon now.

PA at 77.1 cents per gallon gets bumped out of 1st place by CA.

CA total gas taxes now 79 cents per gallon, (60.6 cents state/18.4 cents fed) highest in the nation.

MO is lowest at 35.82 cents.

Berkeley police will no longer be tasked with issuing traffic citations
The Berkeley City Council announced Wednesday some changes to its policing in the wake of the nationwide anti-police protests and said unarmed city workers will now be tasked with handing out traffic citations.

California bill to form reparations task force advances after 33-3 state Senate vote.
The panel would study the effects slavery had on California -- and recommend compensation.

It’s a shame that the Constitution doesn’t have a provision permitting a (super)majority of states to expel another state for conduct equivalent to what the 25th Amendment permits us to do to a POTUS who has gone around the bend.

CA residents are asked to turn off appliances and use the AC sparingly during heat waves. Yeah not exactly the best energy policy example to use nationwide.

This is going to make bordering states car dealerships happy.

Also my best wishes to future Cali EV owners in keeping their vehicle charged with the cuts to power generation and a fracking ban. :coffee:
True, but the 2035 ban will force auto manufacturers to start selling more electric vehicles now in order to build enough of a customer base to get the support infrastructure in place. That’s not just outlets in homes and public places, but also building service networks, training more mechanics, and getting spare parts in place to keep the vehicles running. That can’t be developed overnight — it will take years to put those in place in sufficient quantity to succeed.

In other words, California won’t have fifteen years to add more supply to the grid to meet that demand all at once. More and more vehicles will get added to the grid for power replenishing starting in the next few years. That will add to the demand that California can’t meet at its present levels of supply, with the shortages forcing the state into serious rationing in the form of rolling blackouts.

No nukes, though. Nuclear bad. :ohno:

Imagine how much better off we'd be emission-wise if environmentalists and green folks back in the '70's and '80's were as successful as they were in demonizing nuclear energy.

I foresee an other charge on my hotel statements for power used.

Or have a quick charging "station" similar to a gas station where one can get a mostly complete charge in 10 or so minutes.

Charges for power used should not be a big deal as that would just replace gas/diesel costs.
Hotels would have to add the equipment and maintenance cost of the stations to the bill, and figure out a way to limit the use to guests only.

There should be some good investment options from this.

California is going to have to get busy for the infrastructure to be in place for this. A lot of issues with meeting electric demand from EVs, particularly from the high output fast chargers.

That is Authoritarian stuff. The sad thing is that Donk supporters are too ignorant and/or stupid to realize it.

I don't see how this can be within a governor's authority.
