Kiewit Infrastructure wins contract for Klamath River dam removal in U.S.

The Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) has entered into a dam removal design-build contract with Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. The initial award authorizes $18.1 million in preliminary services, with a further award for project implementation work to follow once design is finalized. KRRC was formed to take ownership of four PacifiCorp dams — J.C. Boyle, Copco, No. 1 & 2, and Iron Gate — and then remove these dams, restoring formerly inundated lands and implementing required mitigation measures in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local regulations. The four dams impounded water for hydroelectric powerhouses with a total capacity of 129.27 MW. KRRC’s work is funded by P

Santa Clara County to explore forming its own public bank

The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday unanimously voted to explore the legality of creating a county-operated public bank in support of a California bill that, if passed, will allow local governments to form their own banks. Advocates say that public banks would help strengthen local institutions, keep public money within the local economy and finance public projects. “I think we have an opportunity for being able to use public dollars better and also comport ourselves more as a public benefit corporation,” said Supervisor Cindy Chavez, who added that frustrating challenges with banks such as Wells Fargo and growing national attention on the prospect of a public bank system

Report: Numerous Jurisdictions Flout California Values Act

I bet you thought that law enforcement enforced our laws. In California 60% of the counties are run by Sheriffs and police chiefs that refuse to obey their oath of office—and prefer to protect criminals from foreign countries than make Americans safe in their homes and on the streets. “A recent review by Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Asian Law Caucus and the University of Oxford Centre for Criminology in England looked at the impacts of California’s sanctuary law. The researchers found that it had already reduced immigrant arrests. Total local jail detentions were down by 31% in the first five months of 2018 compared with the previous year. However, the report also found that 68 out of

Florida Senate Passes Bill to Ban Sanctuary Cities; Governor Expected to Sign

The Florida Senate has passed a bill slated to ban so-called sanctuary city policies, and the state’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, is expected to sign it. The new bill, dubbed SB 168, passed in a 22–18 vote on April 26, with only one Republican voting against the bill. Republican Sen. Joe Gruters, who introduced the bill, said it re-establishes the “rule of law.” Sanctuary cities are locales that have enacted measures to prevent local officials from cooperating with federal immigration authorities. The bill requires state entities, local governmental entities, and law enforcement agencies to use their “best efforts to support the enforcement of federal immigration law.” It also prohibi


Paul Preston on American Thought Leaders produced by THE EPOCH TIMES discusses the New California State movement. Why Some Californians Want to Create a New State—Paul Preston BY JAN JEKIELEK April 21, 2019 Updated: April 21, 2019 Today we sit down with Paul Preston, founder and president of the movement for a New California state. We discuss how realistic the New California movement actually is, why God would be re-introduced into the preamble of the the new state constitution, and how the Reynolds vs Sims 1964 Supreme Court undermined the US “lowercase-r” republican model of governance, leading to the challenges facing many Californians today.

New California State (NCS) Yuba / Nevada Counties Committee Town Hall The NCS movement is in process of forming the 51st State of the Union following the Constitutional process (see Article IV Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution), the only legal and Constitutional pathway to a new state. Not since 1861 when West Virginia became a Union State have the circumstances been present to give rise to a new state.

Cher: Los Angeles ‘Can’t Take Care of Its Own, How Can It Take Care of’ More Immigrants

Pop icon Cher said Sunday that Los Angeles, California, “can’t take care of its own” residents, much less newly arrived illegal and legal immigrants. Cher said she failed to understand how the city of Los Angeles in the sanctuary state of California could afford to admit and take care of any more immigrants when city officials have failed to care for homeless, veterans, and poverty-stricken Americans. “I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,” Cher said. Cher

Statement from City Attorney Dennis Herrera on President Trump's sanctuary city proposal

This is from you cannot make this stuff up file. SAN FRANCISCO (April 12, 2019) — City Attorney Dennis Herrera issued the following statement today regarding President Donald Trump's proposal to transport undocumented immigrants to sanctuary cities: "This just shows how morally bankrupt President Trump is. He wants to use people as political pawns. It’s reprehensible. Here are the facts: immigrants are actually less likely to commit crimes, sanctuary cities are safer and more productive, and the president's proposal would waste millions in taxpayer funds. A real leader would be working on a bipartisan immigration solution.” Additional information is available on the City Attorney's website a


Trump weighs sending 'unlimited supply' of immigrants to sanctuary cities By Richard Cowan WASHINGTON, April 12 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Friday he was considering sending illegal immigrants in the country to so-called sanctuary cities, prompting U.S. mayors to accept such an offer as the battle over border security raged. Frustrated by rising numbers of undocumented immigrants arriving at the southern border and a failure to get Congress to fully fund a U.S.-Mexico border wall, Trump taunted Democrats by dangling the possibility of an influx of illegal immigrants into their communities. "Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration l

California AG Enforces Travel Ban to South Carolina, Turns Blind Eye to Gov’s Trip to El Salvador?

California bans state employee travel to 10 U.S. states with disagreeable social policies The State of California bans state agency, department, board, commission and employee travel to 10 U.S. states with social policies lawmakers disagree with. Passed by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown in 2017, AB 1887 states, “California must take action to avoid supporting or financing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.” The Sacramento Bee reported that California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has extended California’s ban on taxpayer-funded trips to the State of South Carolina, saying it allows private faith-based groups to withhold adoption

Editorial The Victims of Murder Tour To Denounce Socialist Governor The death penalty in California has been a part of its Constitutional frame work since the inception of Alta California in the late 1700s which to deter crime.

Brother of alleged 'Golden State Killer' victim urges Gov. Newsom to reconsider death penalty moratorium A group of family members of murder victims in California, along with a number of district attorneys from across the state, gathered in Sacramento on Thursday to denounce Gov. Gavin Newsom's recent moratorium on the death penalty. At a press conference led by Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer, the family members and district attorneys slammed Newsom’s move to put a moratorium on the executions of the 737 inmates currently incarcerated in the Western Hemisphere’s largest death row and called on the California governor to rescind his executive order. “Governor Newsom took a knife

California wildfires are burning down public utilities

California’s public utilities’ credit ratings are burning down after regulators determined about 70 percent of the state is now rated at high or extreme wildfire risk. California’s Democrat-controlled legislature has mastered the game of deviously nudging public utility regulators to raise fees and surcharges to pay for its progressive environmental initiatives rather than suffering the voter backlash from raising taxes. California residents, due to abundant hydro resources and being the nation’s third-largest oil producer, used to have some of America’s lowest retail electricity rates. But residents paid 18.32 cents per kilowatt hour (/kWh) in 2018, about 47 percent more than the national a

California goes tax wild, eyes levies on everything from water to tires

With the tax-filing deadline just days away, California residents are worried that a slew of proposed levies on everything from soft drinks to water to tires and car batteries could soon see even more money going out of their pockets in the state that already has the nation's highest income tax. As Californians grapple with that 13.3 percent income tax – and some leaner-than-usual refunds this year due to the recent federal tax overhaul – lawmakers in Sacramento are looking at a range of other revenue sources. Members of the legislature's Democratic supermajority argue that these new taxes are vital to shore up the state coffers and to provide crucial services such as repairing crumbling inf

Welcome Mat: California responds to influx of migrants

When Gov. Gavin Newsom announced this week’s trip to El Salvador, he framed its purpose as part scholarly, part Good Samaritan. “Let’s understand what’s happening,” he told an audience in Los Angeles late last month. “And let’s see if we can help!” It’s that second part that has raised the obvious question from some quarters: Help, how? Without its own diplomatic corps or immigration policy, California can’t start “issuing its own visas or have a different policy towards El Salvador than the United States,” said Deep Gulasekaram, a law professor at Santa Clara University. Newsom has described the trip as a “fact-finding” mission. Leaving aside the broader question of whether the governor nee

The ‘California Rule’: A Promise California Cannot Keep

The California Rule is the misleading moniker we’ve given to our state’s most troublesome legal precedent: that public employees are entitled to whatever pension benefits were in place when they started work. Pension benefits in California are so monumental that they might as well be set in the stone of El Capitan—they can never be cut, unless they are replaced with another benefit of equal value. You can say that such an ironclad guarantee is good for public workers. But you can’t say that it’s Californian. In virtually every other context of life here, our state is defined by its lack of guarantees. The California Rule on pensions is really the California Exception. For all its wonders, Ca
