The topic: reforming California government.
For this week's pieces, see the links on the right under "latest stories."
With disgust toward state government rising to new levels, it's a good time to ask if the moment has arrived for fundamental reform in the way California does business.
I've written the lead piece, an overview of the situation and a quick look at three possible approaches to enacting comprehensive change in California government. We've also got four writers opining on three of those potential avenues of reform.
Jim Wunderman, president of the Bay Area Council, advocates a constitutional convention. The Bee's Stu Leavenworth also takes a look at the mechanics of how such a confab might work.
Bill Hauck, president of the California Business Roundtable, was chairman of California's most recent constitution revision commission. He discusses the potential and pitfalls of that approach.
Steven Hill, director of political reform for the New America Foundation, writes on the idea of a Citizens Assembly.
I've also compiled a summary of ten possible reform ideas that might find their way into a package of comprehensive change submitted to California voters.
Thanks for reading.
Does California government need fundamental reform? If so, what kind?
