Blowing Up Boxes?
Well, they tried. A bill sponsored by the Governator and backed by Republicans would have eliminated the state's Integrated Waste Management Board and spread its duties out among other agencies. Long thought of as a safe hideaway for former politicians and their friends, It seemed to me most Californians would have liked to see it gotten rid of.
But that was not to be. The Democrats, who have controlled the state legislature for decades, opposed the bill and none voted for it. They won, the people of the state lost.
I'll admit to being very disappointed in many of the positions the Governator has taken in the past, but he has tried to "blow up the boxes", at least some of them. He just didn't realize the power of the self- serving machine that dominates this state and is likely to continue to dominate the state for the foreseeable future.
