California's far North recently gained some clout in the state legislature. 

First District Assembly Member Brian Dahle (R-Bieber) was chosen by fellow Republicans to be the party's leader in the house. 

The GOP is in the minority in a chamber where Democrats hold a super-majority.  And Dahle has some ideas about reducing the Democratic edge in the 2018 elections. 

It may seem that married women from pioneer days had limited opportunities, as most independent businesswomen were either single or widowed.

California Senate Leader Darrell Steinberg says he doesn’t back the legalization of marijuana.  That’s despite a new poll showing majority support and a new voter initiative entering circulation for signatures.

Steinberg: “I’ve seen too many people that I grew up with ruin their lives as a result of using that drug and other drugs.  And I just don’t think we should legalize it.”
