Excerpts from an Associated Press article about AB 93's passage in the California Legislature last week. Strong words, I know. But the system badly needed reform.
|Assemblyman Mike Gatto, D-Los Angeles, urged lawmakers to approve a measure to overhaul California's enterprise zone program, during the Assembly session at the Capitol Thursday, June 27, 2013, in Sacramento, Calif. The measure AB93 by Assemblyman Bob Blumenfield, D-Woodland Hills, and supported by Gov. Jerry Brown, failed to pass on the two initial attempts, but was passed on the third vote.
