For all the time lawmakers spend in Sacramento, Assemblywoman Shannon Grove says they don't get much done.
Grove: "We legislate rocks. We legislate shark fins. Unionizing babysitters. It's disastrous. And it's nothing to improve the economic situation or give people an opportunity to be employed. And I think people are done with it."
So she's proposing a constitutional amendment that would create a part-time legislature meeting 90 days a year and a two-year budget cycle. But although the idea may sound good, says Senate President Darrell Steinberg:
Steinberg: "I think it would be a huge mistake. And I think despite people's love of kind of taking a shot at us, which is fine - it's all part of it - that people kind of get that."
Steinberg says a part-time legislature would decrease lawmakers' experience - and, therefore, increase the influence of special interests.
