This is a big week in the California State Legislature. We’ve reached that point in the calendar where bills must pass the house where they originated. Big items on that list are police use of force and several others.

Also, the California Democratic Party Convention is this weekend in San Francisco. Fourteen presidential candidates are slated to attend. (Former Vice President, Joe Biden is not attending. He’ll be in Ohio) This alone suggests the importance of California to the 2020 election.

California Democrats have long set the policy agenda for other blue states and are now influencing the party’s presidential primary because the state has moved its primary up to early March. CapRadio’s Capitol Bureau Chief Ben Adler has an update in this week’s CapChat.
