All over our state we have had a very wet March. Rainy seasons like this are important to stave off the impacts of droughts, but only if we have the infrastructure to capture the rain and snow-pack run-off that a season like this provides. The California Water Commission still has not moved on the groundbreaking of two essential water storage projects: The Sites Reservoir and the Temperance Flats Reservoir. Although Prop 1, back in 2014, did not specify which water storage projects the California Water Commission would approve, these two projects are the most logical and furthest along for our state. The California Water Commission is dragging their feet and sitting on funds at the expense of us all. We must contact the CWC and let them know that we haven’t forgotten about this critical water storage and we demand some action! ◼ CLICK HERE for a variety of ways to contact the Commission and its members. As another rainy season comes and goes, remind them that their inaction means our water goes down the drain!
AB 1745 (Ting, D): This bill would place a ban on ALL gas-powered vehicles by 2040. Assemblyman Ting and Governor Brown have floated this idea for years. But in Governor Brown’s last term in office, they see a golden opportunity. By 2040 and onward, AB 1745 would prohibit the DMV from registering any vehicle that was not zero emissions. It would only exclude commercial vehicles that weigh over 10,001 pounds. A mandate like this would be devasting for businesses and Californians alike. AB 1745 is scheduled to be heard in the Assembly Transportation Committee on April 16th. Take a moment to call each member and ask them to VOTE NO on AB 1745. It is an unworkable, unfeasible regulation that would continue to drive businesses and families out of our state.

...The Trump administration is preparing to offer Americans an affordable alternative to the high-cost coverage on Obamacare's exchanges by overturning one of the previous administration's most burdensome regulations.
On February 20, the Department of Health and Human Services released a proposed rule based on President Trump’s October 12, 2017, Executive Order that would allow insurers to sell "short-term" health plans that provide coverage for up to 364 days. The proposed rule is open for comment for 60 days. The measure would nullify an Obama administration directive issued in October 2016 that banned short-term plans lasting longer than three months....

...Beyond The Apprentice, it’s worth remembering that for most of the Bush and Obama presidencies, Donald Trump was a regular featured guest on news programs and not touted as a partisan Republican, hate-monger, or ranting fool. NBC’s Today show regularly had him on to promote The Apprentice and let him vent about whatever else was on his mind. CNN’s Larry King would regularly have him on and ask about the news of the day, like what the U.S. government should be doing about Somali pirates — as if Trump was some sort of naval-warfare expert. On Fox News, Greta Van Susteren asked him how he would negotiate a deal to avoid a government shutdown. He was a frequent guest of Regis Philbin. Barbara Walters declared him one of her “most fascinating” people of 2011, alongside Kim Kardashian.
Even publications like the Guardian did quasi-admiring can-you-believe-this-character profiles. Rolling Stone was happy to interview him. The smallest bits of news from Trump-world generated positive coverage in the biggest publications....

Humboldt County marijuana growers aren't so thrilled with "legalization" that means costly regulation
...Humboldt County, traditionally shorthand for outlaw culture and the great dope it produces, is facing a harsh reckoning. Every trait that made this strip along California’s wild northwest coast the best place in the world to grow pot is now working against its future as a producer in the state’s $7 billion-a-year marijuana market.
A massive industry never before regulated is being tamed by laws and taxation, characteristically extensive in this state. Nowhere is this process upending a culture and economy more than here in Humboldt, where tens of thousands of people who have been breaking the law for years are being asked to hire accountants, tax lawyers and declare themselves to a government they have famously distrusted....
...Wilson estimates that “Fewer than 1 in 10 of the county’s estimated 12,500 marijuana farmers are likely to make it in the legal trade….Less than 1 percent of the estimated 69,000 growers statewide have received a permit to farm marijuana since the beginning of the year.”
As many experts on drug prohibition predicted, prices are dropping in the legalized market. But for Humboldt and neighboring counties, the price drop is happening...
