Stalled in Sacramento

As anyone who reads the newspaper or pays attention to news reports knows, the California state budget is overdue again this year. The July 1 deadline does not seem to mean much to lawmakers in Sacramento, so California citizens must wait through the weeks of summer until a compromise can be reached. Despite many important bills waiting in the legislature, everything is at a standstill. We are not at a disaster stage yet, but surely it is time for responsible citizens to complain to their representatives about the annual ritual of budget postponement. Unless they hear from us, little is likely to change. Now that we have multiple ways of contacting our reps–telephone, email, even snail mail–its time we took the responsibility of letting them know how we feel.
