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 »

Put cities in the driver's seat

The history of our nation's highway system abounds with the pitfalls of 'leadership from a distance’. Whether wiping out entire neighborhoods or enabling sprawling suburban development, we still feel the effects today. It’s time get back to building great cities by putting the power in the hands of local leaders: -Municipal leaders get 'veto' authority over transportation expenditures within city limits. -Cap state ...more »

quality programs for laws

To protect the safety and well being of the public, governmental regulatory agencies enforce high standards of quality for the useful goods and services of major US industries. Let’s expand these quality standards to include laws of government (statutes, regulations, ordinances…), for the same reason. For example, quality design standards for legislative bills would block frivolous and pork barrel laws, and a competent ...more »

Fix the California Income Tax Code and save $$$$$

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. We could greatly simplify the California tax code by having individuals (and maybe even corporations?) file out a one page California ...more »

Bring actual democracy to the U.S.A.

California and the United States are Republics, not true democratic states, due to vote count distortions like first past the post and gerrymandered districts, which all mathematically decay into single party +1 states of unequal representation. Well known voting methods that require only trivial ballot changes, studied by institutions like The Center For Election Science, can mitigate the effects and unearned power ...more »

Fix California's Water Infrastructure and Save the Delta

SolAgra is committed to solving the major water issues in the Delta. The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and the water conveyance system of the State and Central Valley Water Projects have required major improvements for more than 40 years. Three major revisions to the conveyance system have been proposed by the State since 1978. Unfortunately, all three proposals have been essentially the same concept - divert water from ...more »

Create a $2M fund for transparency for California State Agencies

Based on OpenGov’s success working with over a third of California cities and counties (in part from the successful 2015 IYS challenge grant), we propose that FixCA 2016 launch a $2 million fund to help California State Agencies adopt Transparency, Budget Intelligence, and Open-Source Open Data solutions to improve accountability, efficiency, and competition statewide. California spends more than any other state government: ...more »

Four Californias

Four Californians allows counties that border Nevada, Arizona and Oregon to determine which state they wish to affiliate. The idea is simple. The counties that border neighboring states have the right vote to succeed from California and join that state. Once the Neighboring state agrees to accept them, we will redraw the borders to reflect the new state boundaries. California needs a refresh. Our public schools ...more »

Bring back the real bicameral congress

Reynolds v. Sims in 1964 made the huge mistake of prohibiting states from having federal-style bicameral congresses. How this could be unconstitutional when the federal government operates this way is a mystery. A true bicameral congress gives each sub-government (counties in the context of a state, states in the context of the US as a whole) an equal vote in the senate and a vote proportional to their population in ...more »

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 »
