Call their Bluff

Governor Newsom's administration appears to be pressuring California Senator Steve Bradford to trim his anti-discrimination bill, SB 788. SB 788 would prohibit discrimination in apportionment due to factors of race, creed, national origin, gender, marital status, sex, and sexual identity or orientation. Originally the bill included factors of age and genetics, but those were dropped from the bill in a June 17, 2021 amendment. The bill was originally approved by the California Senate on June 2 by a 37-0 vote, and that was before the age and genetics language was dropped.

State Regulations Stand to Sink California Sportfishing Boats

SAN DIEGO, July 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- California's outdoor tourism industry has suffered incredible economic hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly owners of sportfishing and whale watching boats that can be found in most marinas from San Diego to the Oregon border. Even before boat owners can recover their financial losses, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has proposed costly and technically infeasible engine and emission control regulations. The proposed harbor craft regulations will disproportionally impact commercial passenger sportfishing boats who will have to comply beginning January 2023, instead of after the lifespan of existing boats or engines have expired.
