Assemblyman Das Williams, D-Santa Barbara, left, prepares to battle the "Privatization Beast," at a Capitol news conference to promote his measure that would place restrictions on the privatization of public libraries, in Sacramento, Calif., Monday, Aug. 22, 2011. If approved by the Senate and signed by the governor, Williams bill, AB438, would require contractors to prove they would save taxpayers money should they take over a library. It would also require the contracts be put out to competitive bidding and the winning companies would be subjected to financial and performance audits. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
