In Case You Missed It: Senator Jeff Stone's Op-Ed: "Darkening skies over Sacramento not just from eclipse"

Monday, August 21, 2017

SACRAMENTO – Today, the California State Legislature will reconvene after a month-long recess on the same day Americans will witness a total solar eclipse. Senator Jeff Stone (R-Riverside County) highlighted these two events in an Op-Ed published in the Orange County Register and hopes Sacramento Democrats will “see the light” after the eclipse.

Excerpted Op-Ed:

… On Monday, Aug. 21, for the first time in almost a century, a total solar eclipse will be visible within a band across the entire contiguous United States. That same day the state Legislature returns to work in Sacramento after a month-long recess. Coincidence? Already this year the Legislature has passed, and Gov. Brown has signed, the largest spending plan in state history… The list of new laws already approved this year that hurt the poor, the middle-class, small businesses, senior citizens and hard-working families is unprecedented in our state’s history…. Perhaps when the eclipse is over, the state Legislature and Gov. Brown will see the light of day when it comes to what needs to be done to make California great once again.
