“Reforming California: Easier said than done”


You can say that again.

For the last couple of years, some of the state’s most influential business titans and elder statesmen have taken time off to grapple with the mess in Sacramento.

Former Secretaries of State George Shultz and: Condoleezza Rice, Google Inc. Chairman: Eric Schmidt, Los Angeles philanthropist: Eli Broad: and other heavyweights have all attended an effort known as the Think Long Committee for California, which is focused on squaring away the years of mismanagement from Sacramento and conflicting mandates from citizen initiatives.

They haven’t gotten very far.
