Vote nears on how to spend $1.5B in climate change funds
One longtime Capitol insider describes it as “a feeding frenzy: That’s what happens when a large pot of money, in this case roughly $1.5 billion, is available to spend on broad efforts to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality across California.
There are a lot of different groups who want to stake their claim in this mini-Gold Rush.
That’s why clean air folks, agricultural interests, clean energy researchers and car manufacturers, among others, have been engaged in negotiations with…

Last night, Democrats and Republicans traded in their floor votes, political strategies and campaign analytics to don cleats and baseball gloves for the 15th annual Legislative All Star softball game at Raley Field. I was honored to call this time-honored gig from the announcer’s booth, and there was plenty of pre-game pomp, circumstance and bluster.
The Democrats were defending champs, having won the previous two games. Chants bellowed from the grandstands behind the GOP dugout while on the other side, a sea of blue fired back hoots and hollers of their own.

California’s Republican seats are prime targets in 2018
The Trump administration’s decision to nail the door shut on the DACA program has revived talk of a long-elusive issue—that of passing comprehensive immigration reform. But it also guarantees an epic campaign fight next year in California in which a handful of Republican-held congressional seats will be squarely in the bull’s eye.
California is home to more than 200,000 Dreamers. That’s more than 1 in 4 of the total nationwide, so the stakes here are greater than in any other state.

Former CIA director says negotiations, not bluster, are key to avoiding war
Leon Panetta has always been a refreshingly candid political figure. That was true when I first knew him as a second-term congressman representing a big swath of California’s Central Coast.
Panetta would regularly schedule round table sessions for local media. And I, working in my first job as a radio reporter in San Luis Obispo, made a point of attending these sessions where we were able to pose questions on whatever topics came to mind.
I was reminded…

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gov. Jerry Brown and their common dismay with the White House
Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Gov. Jerry Brown are separated in age by a decade. They are of different parties. Brown’s time in elective politics dates back to the 1960s; Schwarzenegger’s to a couple of terms as governor.
But those differences between the current governor and his predecessor shrink in comparison to a common passion and priority: their belief in the need to address the effects of climate change.
Both men regularly, if separately, lampoon President Donald Trump’s decision to…

What’s this? A highly-controversial climate change program approved by Democrats and Republicans?
This week’s high-wire act at the state Capitol is a big win for Gov. Jerry Brown. He said this political battle was not about his legacy. But let’s face it, all politicians care about that, no matter what they might say publicly.
In Brown’s case, the vote to extend the state’s existing cap-and-trade program cements his credentials and his credibility as someone who can advocate for efforts to fight climate change, not just on the national level but on the…

Fallout from gas tax hike creates high stakes drama
The political chess game over efforts to recall freshman state Sen. Josh Newman, D-Fullerton, is picking up speed, with accusations of fraud and betrayal filling the air. At least, the air that’s breathed by California’s political community.
The California Republican Party recently submitted nearly 85,000 signatures to election officials, a number far greater than what’s needed to qualify the recall for the ballot.
Radio talk show host Carl DeMaio, a former San Diego City Council member, is spearheading the effort over Newman’s…
