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 »

CA Results: Performance Dashboard by Every Local Government

The number one job for every government is to be communicate accurately and clearly with its stakeholders. This has become hard, despite initiatives like open data.

While preparing my income taxes I discovered that the depreciation schedules for real estate investments are different for federal and state tax returns. Why is this? I also looked at five past tax returns and discovered that my California income tax was around 30% of my federal obligation.

Open Voter Id for California citizens

When a local city agency wants to collect feedback from their citizens, they have a couple choices.

End Gerrymandering ! Redistrict based on mathematical algorithm.

Gerrymandering is a very big problem. And the citizen's redistricting commission helped, but did not make it go away. Whenever people are involved in the process there will be compromises, there will be "Horse Trading", there will be millions of dollars, and years of lost time. What if I told you that there is a way to end gerrymandering, save millions of dollars, and get the process done in days instead of years. ...more »
