the 2008 California Legislature
passed 772 bills
the taxpayer paid $350 million dollars in salary and costs
equals over 1/2 million $ each legislator
resulting in a
$40 Billion deficit (over the next 18 months)
We need to return to a part-time legislature, of citizens who want to give to their community, honorably, and who don't get paid if they don't DO THEIR JOB: pass the budget.
