City Attorney Jan Goldsmith recently filed a lawsuit against the state of California to try to invalidate a new law requiring the city to provide Social Security coverage for its new employees.  A measure authored by Assemblymember Ben Hueso.

The real story out of this is that three local labor unions representing white-collar workers, firefighters and lifeguards are joining Goldsmith in the lawsuit.

Assemblyman Fletcher maintained his impeccable 70% 71% absence rate today.

The State Assembly voted on 35 proposed laws today, bringing Fletcher’s total missed votes to a whopping 263 this year.
