Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

"Aye" and "no" weren't the only votes California legislators cast last session.

State lawmakers missed or abstained from votes more than 48,000 times during the 2009-2010 session, an analysis by Bee colleague Phillip Reese found. That breaks down to roughly one out of every 12 votes cast. The review looked at both committee and floor votes, though floor votes made up 80 percent of the abstentions.
