CALIFORNIA INTEGRATED WASTE MANAGEMENT BOARD'S (CIWMB) ADMINISTRATION OF THE
WASTE TIRE RECYCLING MANAGEMENT PROGRAM - This study was done by the Senate
Advisory Commission on Cost Control in State Government. The Commission is the
only Senate authority that deals exclusively with promoting cost control and
increased efficiency of state government. The Commission says the CIWMB has
done an adequate job of cleaning up old stockpiles. However, the number of
waste tires generated each year still far exceeds the number of tires diverted
from landfill disposal and stockpiling. Until significant expansion of existing
markets for waste tires occurs, or until new technologies emerge, the board will
continue to fall short of its goal. (Stock #1231-S; 4.85 - includes tax s/h)

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE LEGISLATIVE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF 2003 BY THE CALIFORNIA SENATE
OFFICE OF RESEARCH - The legislative session in 2003 was like no other, dogged
by a budget shortfall projected by the Davis administration at #38 billion in
May and capped by the voter recall on Governor Gray Davis in October, five days
before his deadline for acting on legislation sent to him in the waning days of
the session. He remained in office until the election was certified weeks
later. This document highlights measures sent to Governor Davis in 2003 in more
than 30 policy areas and reports his actions on them, including their chapter
numbers if signed. When lawmakers return in January for the second year of
their two-year session, a new chief executive -- Arnold Schwarzenegger -- will
be awaiting them in the governor's office to offer his own budget proposals, and
perhaps other initiatives, and determine the fate of their bills. (Stock #1229-

SCIENCE, SERVICE, AND STATUTES: A LEGISLATIVE HISTORY OF SENATE BILL 1588 AND
THE MOSQUITO ABATEMENT & VECTOR CONTROL DISTRICT LAW - California's mosquito
abatement districts have a long and successful record of applying science to
counter public health threats. Their early battle against malaria and
encephalitis demonstrated the value of local governments that were well
organized and properly funded. The recent invasions by vectors such as the
Asian Tiger mosquito and by pathogens such as the West Nile virus underscore the
need to keep these local governments prepared to protect the public health and
safety. In 2001 the Senate Local Government Committee learned that the state
laws governing the mosquito abatement districts were outdated. They set up a
"Working Group" on revising the law. In several lengthy meetings, the Working
Group scoured each section, discarding obsolete sections, revising outdated
provisions, and retaining the most useful language. This report records those
efforts. (Stock #1226-S; $6.20 - includes tax s/h) (9/03)

PROP 54 "PROHIBITION AGAINST CLASSIFYING BY RACE, STATE & OTHER PUBLIC ENTITIES
INITIATIVE": IMPACTS ON HEALTH, LAW ENFORCEMENT, EDUCATION, & HUMAN RIGHTS OF
CALIFORNIANS - A Joint hearing held before the Senate and Assembly Judiciary
Committees held in compliance with the Elections Code. The supporters of Prop
54 state that their goal with this initiative is to create a "color-blind
society", where these characteristics are irrelevant. The opponents say that in
fact, that goal will never be achieved if the state is not allowed to classify
individuals according to those categories when providing public education,
entering into public contracts, or employing workers. The goal of this hearing
is to have a constructive airing of the issues raised by Prop 54. (Stock #1224-

COLLEGE ATHLETES - An informational hearing held by the Senate Select Committee
on the Entertainment Industry. The origins of this hearing stem from just a
general interest in how student-athletes are treated, particularly in
California. We have approximately 17,000 students at 45 schools who participate
in NCAA sanctioned sports, and then there are additional athletes in other
sports. There is clearly a significant amount of money flowing through and for
these sports, not only through TV but through advertising and sponsorships and
various forms of revenue, as well as alumni and booster contributions. It's the
billions and billions of dollars which cause some interest, considering that
this is supposed to be amateur sports. (Stock #1221-S; $6.73 - includes tax
s/h) (4/03)

PEER-TO-PEER FILE SHARING (MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY,
COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY) - An informational hearing held by the Senate Select
Committee on Entertainment Industry about peer-to-peer file sharing. It is
systems whereby people transfer files, usually entertainment-related files,
across what some would describe as a network, what some would describe as kind
of an open-source community. The music industry claims it has been almost a
death sentence for them, and the movie industry have similar complaints. (stock

them. This guide sketches the history of LAFCOs and describes the key
legislative reforms adopted in 2000. Written clearly and illustrated with new
charts, the 2003 edition presents a fresh format that will help local elected
officials, public managers, and their constituents understand how LAFCOs decide
who gets to develop land, who pays which taxes, and who receives public
services. (Stock #872-S; $3.50 - includes tax, s/h) (5/03)

DISPOSAL OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE - Hearing to reach a broader understanding of
several issues involving low level radioactive waste in California, how it is
regulated, where it is disposed of, and how the Department of Health Services
Radiologic Health Branch interacts with regulated companies that fall within its

management agency and not equipped to effectively police and protect the
environment? (Stock #1219-S; $6.47 - includes tax s/h) (3/03)

California Community College Transfer Rates: Policy Implications and a Future
Research Agenda - An analytical exploration of trends in student transfers from
community colleges to four-year colleges and universities in California.
Although community college enrollments have risen by almost 30 percent over the
past two decades, there has been a much smaller increase in transfers. Of
particular concern in California, rates of transfer for Latino and African-
American community college students are lower than for other students. This
analysis was done by researchers at California State University, Sacramento and
sponsored by the Senate Office of Research. (Stock #1218-S; $3.77 - includes

STRETCHED THIN: GROWING GAPS IN CALIFORNIA'S EMERGENCY ROOM BACKUP SYSTEM (AB
2611) - AB 2611 (Gallegos) passed in 2000, requires the Senate Office of
Research to conduct a comprehensive study of the hospital emergency department
on-call coverage issue in California. The study must include the magnitude of
the challenges facing emergency departments, including those in under served and
rural areas, the scope of the challenges facing other states, and how other
states have addressed on-call coverage issues. The bill also requires SOR to
convene a working group of affected California stakeholders, including
hospitals, hospital organizations, physician organizations, other on-call
specialists, payers, and state agencies. With the assistance of the working
group, SOR developed a list of findings and principles for reform of the on-call
coverage system that formed the basis for this report. (Stock #1216-S; $5.12 -

THE USE OF SECLUSION AND RESTRAINTS IN PSYCHIATRIC CARE FACILITIES (SENATE

years, like other major groundwater pollution cases in California. The purpose
of the Senate hearings is to get to the source and scope of the perchlorate
contamination problem quickly and efficiently, and develop solutions that can be
implemented without further delay. (Stock #1213-S; $10.51 - includes tax s/h)

111 OF 1990 - The testimony and materials presented at the hearing are
invaluable to anyone wishing to understand the historical perspective and the
role of the current state spending cap as well as the ramifications of making
any future adjustments. Highlights from the testimony, discussions, and written
materials included the following: Proposition 4 was to limit growth on both
state and local government; Proposition 111 was to help the needs for increased
student enrollment and critical transportation construction improvements.
Future revisions to the spending limit could dramatically interfere with the
state's ability to meet its needs in the areas of education, health,
infrastructure, and our rapidly aging population. (Stock #1212-S; $6.47 -

RECORD LABEL ACCOUNTING PRACTICES - JOINT HEARING OF THE CALIFORNIA SENATE
COMMITTEE ON JUDICIARY AND THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY (2ND HEARING 9/24/02) -
This informational hearing is the second hearing of the committees to review the
accounting practices of record labels. The impetus for these hearings stems
from news reports of famous recording artists having to rely on public
assistance or being denied pension or health benefits because of their royalty

recording artists having to sue their record labels for proper accounting of

BREAST CANCER AND THE ENVIRONMENT - SECOND INFORMATIONAL HEARING - Breast
cancer rates have nearly tripled over the last fifty years. This is a public
health crisis. While much of our attention has focused on detection, access to
care, and finding a cure, it is imperative that we begin to examine why the
rates are increasing at such a dramatic pace. While continuing to support
research for genetic risk-factor-related causes is very important, we ought not
abandon that goal and objective, it is time to begin to expand the scope of
this policy debate and begin to develop the responses and the research
necessary to address questions about environment impacts. This is the subject
of this hearing. (Stock #1205-S; $8.35 - includes tax s/h) (10/03) Also see

of the revision; and 70% of the reductions are associated with four policy
areas which are K-12 Education, transportation, health and local government.

GOVERNANCE WORKING GROUP FINAL REPORT (EDUCATION) - Governance addresses the
education system's ability to meet its expectations and solve problems within
its structure. Governance is essentially structure and control: What officials
or entities should be making and carrying out what decisions, and within what
structures? To answer these questions, the goals of the education system must
be clearly articulated. The goals then provide a basis for the configuration
of structures and the designation of responsibilities and decision-making
authority. Recommended improvements include; employing student achievement as
the measure of success; improving accountability; and ensuring coordination
between K-12 and postsecondary education, and between and among the University
of California, California State University, and California Community Colleges.

shortage of providers, limited availability of linguistically appropriate care,
lack of transportation, particularly in rural areas, and lack of information
about available services. The Senate Health and Human Services Committee and

immediate steps in the wake of the terrorists attacks to ensure the safety of
this state. Our immediate response has been strong and sustained, but it is
only a start, and we must now begin to assess what we can do to make California
a national model for terrorism preparedness. This year, the legislature will be
taking action on hundreds of bills that have been introduced in the wake of last
September's tragedies. We must provide our "first responders" with the training
and equipment they need to respond to a terrorist act; we must decide how to
give state and local officials the tools they need to prosecute and deter those
acts, while also respecting our individual liberties; and we must coordinate our
resources and communication systems with federal authorities to provide a

WORKFORCE PREPARATION AND BUSINESS LINKAGES STRATEGIC PLANNING GROUP FINAL
REPORT (JOINT TO DEVELOP A MASTER PLAN FOR EDUCATION KINDERGARTEN THROUGH

global, technology-based economy, it is critical that they attain higher levels
of achievement in core academic subject areas, especially, reading, writing,
mathematics, and science. In the 21st Century, business and industry are
demanding individuals who have high degrees of academic knowledge and who can
apply that knowledge in an increasingly technology-rich workplace. This report
calls for widespread implementation of career guidance and advisement across all
levels of education to provide students with a greater understanding of
resources and varied opportunities available to them at major junctures, in
order that they are able to make quality decisions about future careers and/or
postsecondary choices. (Stock # 1141-S; $3.23 - includes tax s/h) (3/02)

FINANCE & FACILITIES WORKING GROUP K-12 EDUCATION FINAL REPORT (JOINT COMMITTEE
TO DEVELOP A MASTER PLAN FOR EDUCATION KINDERGARTEN THROUGH UNIVERSITY) - The
overarching theme governing the work of the Group is to simplify the system of
school finance. Two key features characterize simplification: First, the
school finance system must be understandable by educators, policymakers,
families and the general public. Second, the system must be rational, meaning
it is aligned with the instructional, governance, and accountability structures
of the public school system. The goals for the Group include the following:
Assure adequate funding; Distribute resources equitably; explore local revenue
options; allocate revenues to support the effective delivery of services;
Develop and maintain adequate and appropriate educational facilities. (Stock

FINANCE & FACILITIES WORKING GROUP - POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION FINAL REPORT (JOINT
COMMITTEE TO DEVELOP A MASTER PLAN FOR EDUCATION KINDERGARTEN THROUGH
UNIVERSITY) - California has an extensive set of postsecondary institutions that
offer a vat array of activities. Within that array, state appropriations
constitute the core funding for each public segment of higher education and a
large portion of financial aid available to students in private institutions.
The state government also controls directly, or strongly influences, the level
of student charges in public institutions. Because of this role, it is
important that the state's approach to finance be tied directly to clear policy
goals that meet the needs of students, serve the interests of the institutions,
respond to the workforce needs of business, and fulfill the fiduciary
responsibilities of state government to the taxpayers. The working group was
guided by the following goals: Access, affordability, choice, quality,
efficiency cooperation accountability and shared responsibility. (Stock #1132-

SCHOOL READINESS WORKING GROUP FINAL REPORT (JOINT COMMITTEE TO DEVELOP A MASTER
PLAN FOR EDUCATION KINDERGARTEN THROUGH UNIVERSITY) - The group proposes a
coordinated set of programs and services for families and their children, birth
to grade three that are sufficiently powerful and accessible to improve school
readiness and performance. The long-term goal is to reverse a widespread

CHILDHOOD IMMUNIZATION MANDATES: POLITICS VS. PUBLIC HEALTH - This hearing
addresses an array of issues regarding the development of new laws and policies
on childhood immunizations. These issues were initially raised last year with
the introduction of several bills related to the prevention of disease through
the use of vaccines. Primarily, the Senate Health and Human Services
Committee's concerns relate to potential unintended consequences of mandating
additional vaccines as school entry requirements. These include: Devoting
limited resources which may be more valuable in other areas of public health;
Potentially contributing to parents' fears and skepticism about vaccines;
Unnecessarily vaccinating children who already have immunity; Unnecessarily
requiring mandates when voluntary use, and standards of practice, are adequate;
and Safety concerns about administering vaccinations to children. (Stock #1130-

FROM THE COMMITTEE BRIEFINGS - This report by the Senate Local Government
Committee contains four staff findings based on the remarks by the eight
witnesses: The budget deficit is worse than expected; Local governments want
stability and predictability in revenues; Local officials didn't ask legislators
to suspend many mandates; Local governments view their proposed ballot
initiative as a starting point for fiscal reform, not the solution. The

2002-03 State Budget, heard advice from local government lobbyists on how
legislators can reduce the Budget's effects, and listened to explanations of a
ballot initiative proposed by local government trade associations. The new

PERSONAL SERVICE CONTRACTS: SEVEN YEAR RULE; EXCEPTION FOR RECORDING ARTISTS -
Currently, California Labor Code Section 2855 limits the length of personal
service contracts to seven years, with a specified exception for recording
artists. The specified exception for recording artists was added in 1987 and
requires recording artists to provide written notice to invoke the seven-year
limitation. In addition, each party has the right to sue for damages when the
terms of the contract are violated. In practice, this allows record companies
to sue artists for undelivered albums, specified in the contract. Artists and
record companies continue to dispute the provisions of Labor Code Section 2855
and the effects of subdivision (b). These issues were discussed on September 5,
2001 at the hearing held by the Senate Select Committee on the Entertainment

URBAN SPRAWL, PART II: INFLUENCES OF THE "FISCALIZATION OF LAND USE" AND URBAN
GROWTH BOUNDARIES - California policy-makers and think tanks often talk of the
"fiscalization of land use." It's a shorthand way of suggesting that local
planning and zoning decisions are driven by the goal of maximizing the local tax
revenues that land can produce. While it has been assumed this phenomenon
encourages urban sprawl - as "big box stores," auto malls and other high-volume
retailers spring up on once open lands - no one has studied whether the
appropriate data does, indeed, show that fiscal considerations are driving many
local land-use decisions. Prepared by Robert W. Wassmer, Visiting Consultant

OUTCOMES OR OUTRAGE: A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY FOR CALIFORNIA. HOW IS CALIFORNIA
MEASURING UP? This fourth report by the Senate Advisory Commission on cost
control in State Government evaluates the current use of performance
measurements in California State Government and reviews efforts of several
states and private businesses and comments on Federal government efforts. The
Commission believes that setting targets in costs, efficiency, services, program
outcomes, and quality and them measuring the actual performance against these
targets would result in significant improvement in every aspect of the State’s
operations. It is clear that no business or government can operate successfully
without a business plan with specific performance targets that become
commitments resulting in complete accountability. At one time among states,
California was regarded as the model for public administration. This is no

longer the case. It is hoped that this report will encourage the Governor and

once held. (Stock #1078-S; $9.16 – includes tax s/h) (4/01)

DEPARTMENT OF INSURANCE: IN RUBBLE AFTER NORTHRIDGE ~ RECOMMENDATIONS FOR
REBUILDING PUBLIC CONFIDENCE – The lack of written rules began with a lack of
clarity in some statutes, and has heavily impacted the recommendations of this
report. While this report makes many recommendations, and while it outlines the
facts surrounding many DOI activities, it is not exhaustive. Most disturbing is
the manner in which former Insurance Commissioner Chuck Quackenbush contorted
current law to objectives that were never contemplated by the Legislature. As
the evidence unfolds, the Legislature must seriously re-examine those statutes
that provided opportunities for abuse. But while policy reforms are debated,
there should be no argument over the immediate goal of helping policyholders who
remain victimized by the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, the costliest natural
disaster in our nation’s history. (Stock #1050-S; $3.77 – includes s/h) (8/00)

BROWNFIELDS TO SCHOOL SITES: HOW CAN THE STATE FACILITATE CLEANUP TO BUILD
ESSENTIAL SCHOOLS? – Environmental injustice occurs where environmental
degradations are overconcentrated in low-income and minority communities.
Because a disproportionate share of “brownfields” (vacant of underutilized sites
that may be contaminated from prior uses) are located in these areas, cleaning
up these sites and promoting their reuse helps alleviate the historical
injustices affecting these neighborhoods. When handled correctly and adequately
cleaned or mitigated, brownfields can provide sites for safe neighborhood
schools. In some communities, this is one of the few options open for meeting
the dire need for school space. This hearing is meant to obtain input from
professionals in the field on how the state can further facilitate the cleanup
of brownfields for use as schools where alternatives do not readily exist.

prevent timely access to services for many CCS-eligible children, including
