OPINION: NO PART-TIME CA LEGISLATURE
~ by Charlotte M Liebel ~
OPINION: Some work is needed, however, a part-time California Government is unacceptable.
Consider: Where feasible, retire some STAFF assistants and substitute college Work-Study students on lower salaries.
Consider: Web-Cam for attendance at group meetings rather than traveling to meetings as a way for cutting expenses.
SEEK ALTERNATIVE flexible work options.
[ANSWER to an editorial dated Monday, January 23, 2012 ~ KABC7 ~]
Part-time Legislature proposed for California
“A new analysis by the non-partisan Legislative Analyst’s Office says California could save $9 million just from cutting salaries and tens of millions of dollars more eliminating staff and travel.
“You will save costs, but at what expense?” said Phillip Ung, policy advocate for California Common Cause.
California Common Cause, a government watchdog, says a part-time Legislature will cause conflicts of interest because lawmakers will need full-time jobs, many in industries that could have business before the state.”
