California Legislature on the Bleeding Edge (National Radio Commentary / Salem-Townhall.com) February 26, 2015

Posted by daviddavenport in Op/Eds, Radio Commentaries.

They say that California is on the bleeding edge of national change, so perhaps we should take a look at some of the 930 new laws that went on the books in 2015.

California struck its own blow for immigration reform by allowing driver’s licenses for undocumented residents.  This will be expensive, with 1.4 million new applications to be processed by new offices and personnel.

But don’t worry if you take a naked selfie in California.  A new law protects the privacy of such photos. Meanwhile, the state will be safe from plastic bags, banning them July 1 in groceries and pharmacies. Chickens are also safer, with roomier cages now legally required for egg-laying chickens, dog owners can take their pets to outdoor cafes, and thank goodness Confederate flags can no longer be sold in state souvenir shops. 

What better case could there be for a part-time legislature?   

As Mark Twain said, “no man’s life, liberty or property are safe while the legislature is in session.”
