No more clean ups?
You know, like the annual beach and river clean ups we have around here. I suspect the Adopt- a- Highway program would be affected, as well. The Sacramento Bee reports if the legislature doesn't act by the end of next week, any program that accepts government money and uses volunteers will have to begin paying those volunteers.
There's some dispute amongst the powers that be whether the state can exempt volunteers from this soon- to- be- enacted state law. I would hope the Governor would act to exempt the volunteers, assuming there's legal grounds to do so. I don't expect the legislature to act on this, but maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised?
