California Federation of Republican Women
Sue Blair, President
The bills have passed, the vetoes handed down, and the Legislature is on recess until January 5th. Governor Newsom acted on 1,042 bills this session and is the undisputed most liberal Governor in California history, according to LA Times columnist George Skelton. Although we disagree with the “grade” Skelton gave Newsom (a B-), we agree the government took more control over our lives than ever before. Read the article HERE. It is a good summation of all the bills we’ve been tracking (and mostly opposing) as a Federation.
Since the Legislature will not return to Sacramento unless an extraordinary session is called by Governor Newsom, the Capitol Update will be taking a break. We will resume with the return of the Legislature for the second year of the legislative session.
