  • Capital budget’s impact on school construction funding July 21, 2017
    The third special session ended yesterday without the passage of the $4.2 billion capital budget.

    Sen. Kevin Ranker, D-Orcas Island, released this statement after Senate Republicans refused to allow a vote on the state capital budget: It is incredibly unfortunate that on the final day of the special legislative session, the Senate Republicans placed their political agenda ahead of the wellbeing of our children, mentally ill, homeless, and public and […]

  • “Stability” Is Another Word for “Lack of Accountability” July 22, 2017
    A bill in the California legislature would give Caltrain, the commuter trains that connect San Jose with San Francisco, “permanent financial stability.” That’s good news if you think you will be riding Caltrains one thousand years from now, but it’s bad news for the taxpayers who will have to “permanently”–however long that is–pay for running […]
  • HUD Backs Off on Housing Mandate July 21, 2017
    In a case with national ramifications, the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) has effectively given up on its efforts to impose high-density housing on low-density suburbs in the name of racial integration.

    “Can Miami afford more rail?” asks the Miami Herald. “Or will it settle for buses?” That’s like asking if you can afford an IBM 700 mainframe computer from the 1950s or if you will settle for a MacBook Pro.
