“Pension reform is now where it should be: in the hands of San Diego voters...”

Grassroots taxpayer advocacy organization Americans for Prosperity California congratulates San Diego Councilman Carl DeMaio for his record breaking success in qualifying Comprehensive Pension Reform (CPR) for the June 2012 ballot with 115,991 certified signatures.

“We are seeing this all over the state, people are angry with how government has been spending taxpayer dollars and are demanding change,” explained AFP State Chairman Peter Foy. “This ballot measure in San Diego will save taxpayers billions in the future.”

Lawsuit Against Cap and Trade Brewing?

November 03, 2011 J

There it was. A short, possibly historic, email on the website for the Coalition of Energy Users. It was from CEU’s founder, Eric Eisenhammer. The email read:

“Warren and Pam Duffy’s southern California chapter of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT SoCal) has found a legal team who seeks injured parties as potential Plaintiffs in an Anti Cap and Trade-AB32/CARB lawsuits. CFACT will set up teleconference interviews with the attorneys to determine qualifying criteria.”

Duffy was seeking injured parties from businesses affected by the new Cap and Trade that’s part of AB 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, which former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law (picture above). Last month, the California Air Resources Board announced it was implementing Cap and Trade beginning on January 1, 2012, but enforcement will be postponed until 2013.
