March 24 Open Thread


*  Sen. Pat Wiggins (D-Santa Rosa) is taking a partial leave from the Legislature.

*  A report from the Air Resources Board shows that AB 32 won’t hurt the economy, and could create some new jobs.  Asm. Republican Leader Martin Garrick is outraged about something. Apparently, he doesn’t like when economists mess with these “numbers.”

*  John Myers takes the recent Field Poll numbers and tries to come up with a budget plan. However, it would be worthwhile to roll in some of the PPIC polls that show voters support measures to increase taxes for education and other causes.

*  Clint Reilly takes a stroll through the raging river of campaign cash.
