A new year, a new legislative session

Beginnings - whether it is the New Year or the new legislative session - traditionally bring a whirlwind of optimism, collegiality and excitement for the future. 2015 should be no exception. On Jan. 5, Governor Jerry Brown will be sworn in for a record 4th term and will lay out his vision for the state.
