Reduce Redundancy, Add Innovation: Prohibit Zombie Bills in CA

Streamline legislative process by prohibiting consideration of any bill that is substantially similar to a previous bill that has previously been defeated in Assembly or Senate, vetoed, or overturned by a court. (This would be a prohibition of "zombie bills" in CA.) This will substantially free up time in the Legislature to focus on innovation while reducing redundancy and taxpayer burden. In each legislative session, ...more »

TAX THE ROBOTS

Every time a robot comes online another job is lost. But remember-- jobs are a means to an end not an end in themselves. As tech progresses fewer people will be needed to complete tasks -- to "do jobs." Already it has been predicted that the job of a radiologist will be replaced by computers. The computers can do it better. There are a million Americans employed now as drivers. Self driving cars will eliminate those 1,000,000 ...more »

Take the profit fom being a politician

Return California to apart time legislature. Representives do not get a salery, pension, medical, other perks, just a stipend to cover costs for attending a legislative session once every 2 years.

Take away the profit and lifetime income and those representing us will be acting for the good of the State and the people.

In the past 15 years fines have increased by 500%! In light of the current unprecedented inequality, it is a gross injustice to ruin someone's life, livelihood and ability to earn a living by imposing flat fines without regard to income or ability to pay. ...more »

Put cities in the driver's seat

Prohibit government departments funding themselves via fines

Government departments have perverse incentives to excessively fine people and confiscate property via civil forfeiture. A constitutional amendment, requiring that any fines or fees be either given to the state treasury or returned to tax payers via tax refunds, would fix this problem. Without the ability to fund their departments via excessive fees, parking tickets, traffic tickets, civil forfeiture, and other seizures, ...more »
