Legislative Summit on Jobs and Regulations in California: March 19, 2010

Dear Community Members,

With more than 15% of Riverside County residents out of work, the Legislature needs to stop making our economic problems worse and instead take action to lower costs and bring back jobs.

That’s why lawmakers need to hear from people like you on what we can do to get California back on track.  Please join me and other Riverside County legislators for a special hearing in Riverside on March 19 to hear from local job creators.  They will talk about how high costs and irrational regulations have made it hard for them to create jobs in California and compete with other states.

Come join the discussion and learn what the Legislature can do to put jobs first again.

Berkeley Bicycle Dispute Goes Viral

Could there be too much success when it comes to adopting a bicycle centered transportation approach?

UC Berkeley police say they have issued 103 bike citations from August to November, a 41% increase over the same period last year, nabbing students for riding through designated “dismount zones” and locking their bikes to railings instead of often-overfilled racks.

UC Berkeley students — already squeezed by steep tuition increases — are banding together

to protest campus citations for bike infractions that run $220 apiece and exceed many vehicle violations.  And well they should.

Let’s hope we plan for a much better outcome in Riverside. No one except ousted City of Bell officials would sign off on that.
