Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Back from the long Christmas weekend and want to catch up on Capitol news? Here's a start.

Check out the reporting collaboration between the The Bee's Laurel Rosenhall and California Watch's Chase Davis looking back at the successes and failures of lobbying interests at the Capitol in 2011.

See the database California Watch put together on lobbying successes. And the interactive graphic The Bee's Nathaniel Levine mapped on lobbying successes and money spent on lobbying.

Meanwhile, The Bee's Californians to Watch series has cranked up for 2012, launched by a look back at the 2011 class and how they did.

Today's installment of the 2012 class features Democratic political consultant Gale Kaufman. Monday's subject was Matt Cates, director of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
