Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

When Democrat Jerry Brown invited Republican Meg Whitman yesterday to join him in 10 town halls, she told him to release more policy details first.

So we won't hold our breath about town halls. But it looks like one Brown-Whitman meeting is in the works.

The California Broadcasters Association and the Public Policy Institute of California is set to make an announcement this afternoon "regarding a gubernatorial debate." We'll keep you posted.

As for the gubernatorial candidates themselves, Brown will be touring the Solaria Inc. headquarters and manufacturing facility in Fremont this morning with lieutenant governor nominee Gavin Newsom and others.

Whitman will be at a homecoming rally at San Jose Tech Museum.

Meanwhile, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is in Washington to meet with U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and California Rep. Henry Waxman, the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

Schwarzenegger will also be joining Tennessee Rep. John Tanner, former Texas Rep. Martin Frost and filmmaker Jeff Reichert for a Q&A following the Washington premiere of Reichert's documentary, "Gerrymandering."

Wonder if the governor will wind up saying something about blowing up the districts.

REGISTRATION DRIVE: Sign up for the bone marrow and stem cell registry 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the state's Capitol's Room 127. Sponsors include Sen. Mark DeSaulnier, Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, Assemblywoman Alyson Huber, Assemblymen Dave Jones and Roger Niello, and others.

HEARING: The Senate Select Committee on Autism and Related Disorders discusses inconsistencies in health insurance coverage for people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders. The public hearing runs from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Room 3191.
