In his inaugural address Monday, California Governor Jerry Brown spoke of three priorities. This was one of them:
Brown: "Return as much as possible decisions and authority to cities and counties and schools - closer to the people."
Tuesday, on his first full day in office, Brown moved forward on that goal. He met for more than an hour with the board of the California State Association of Counties. The discussion centered on shifting responsibility for a host of programs to local government.
