Independent voices from the TWT Communities
After decades of fighting with tight-fisted taxpayers and Republicans for more money, California's Democrats finally saw the revenue floodgates open Tuesday.
California lawmakers on Tuesday sent the governor a bill that would make the state the first to require public schools to include in social studies curricula the contributions of gays and lesbians.
At the state Capitol, Assembly Speaker John Perez, D-Los Angeles, said the thoughts and prayers of legislators were with the people at the Taft school.
"It really is just another very sad moment as we deal with the ongoing reality of gun violence that has captured so much of our attention this last year," Perez said.
