Position Papers
Comprehesive Tax Reform
California's tax system is unfair, outdated, and unsustainable.
Preserving Retirement Security
California needs to work diligently to ensure public employee and teacher retirees as well as private sector workers can realize retirement security at the end of their careers.
Modeling Responsible Environmental Stewardship
As the need to address climate disruption increases in urgency, it is imperative that strategies be developed that have both the public and private sectors bearing the responsibilities and costs. By not doing so, the public sector and taxpayers will bear more of the costs to address climate disruption, thereby putting at risk, funding for other critical public services.
