Legislature should take action to be more transparent during Sunshine Week

This week, the Legislature passed a resolution to recognize Sunshine Week, encouraging Californians to participate in appropriate activities relating to open government and access to public information. Passing this resolution is an important and symbolic act that recognizes a transparent government as the key to a free society. I encourage my colleagues to honor their commitment to government transparency this week by voting for Assembly Constitutional Amendment 4, which will require a bill to be in print for at least 72 hours before a vote.

Bridging the valley of death

As a child, I learned about the "valley of the shadow of death" from the 23 Psalm. A similar image is conjured up by economists who talk about the "valley of death." They mean that potentially deadly stage in the life of a business when production needs to be massively scaled up but investors aren't willing to make that leap based only on pilot-scale results or because the economics of full-scale production are still iffy. One segment of the young biofuels industry is approaching that valley.
