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.

The total costs of crude oil

Even if I walked to work each day, I would still be indebted for my daily bread to cars and trucks. The many goods we buy in stores arrive at their destinations courtesy of the internal combustion engine. Motors and engines are woven into the warp and weft of all our economic activity from farming to manufacturing. Although small amounts of biofuels are mixed with the gasoline we purchase, most of the fuel we use comes from crude oil.
