FEATURING BTIAN LEUBITZ – If you’re among the millions of Americans depressed with the state of our nation, California is offering some hope in these dark times. Pressed by grassroots activists working on a variety of issues the nation’s most populous state passed a slate of forward-looking bills and Governor Jerry Brown just signed them into law one by one.
Among the new laws offering hope are a ban on toxic flame retardants, an affirmation of net neutrality, stricter gun laws, transparency requirements on police misconduct, and a push for gender parity on corporate boards.
