Govern For California

For decades, special interests have wielded outsized influence over California’s governance, resulting in low-quality public services and ever-increasing spending with little to show for it.

The Newsom Administration is circulating a rebuttal to my criticism of the Governor’s Proposed 2024-25 Budget. As a reminder, that criticism is that Mr. Newsom proposes to draw on the Rainy Day Fund even though the country is not in a recession and doing so would seriously impair the state’s ability to preserve public services in a recession.
