quality programs for laws

Business Related Gov Forms

California has many forms that a business has to fill out. They don't accept most of these forms online, and thus must be filled out by had and mailed in.

Honest Legislator Program Act

Currently trust in the Legislature is very low and after 3 legislators were convicted of felonies and 3 others left the legislature to work for those that lobbied them, it is clear we need to demand far more of our elected officials than we have been. We need Legislators that are honest with the people of the state of California and ones that are not controlled by anyone other than the voters of the great state of California. ...more »
