"'Enactment of AB 583 would be a significant step forward to lifting the stain on our democracy and political system so evident nationally in the Abramoff and DeLay scandals,' said Rose Ann DeMoro, executive director of the California Nurses Association, a key sponsor of the bill. Some two dozen registered nurses attended Tuesday's session in support of the bill, and nurses have been contacting legislators prior to the vote. 'In California, this vote, and the grassroots movement that has been building for the bill, symbolizes the growing voter revolt against two consecutive governors and the legislature for the embarrassment of cash register politics in Sacramento,' DeMoro said. Introduced by Assembly member Loni Hancock (D-Berkeley), the bill next heads to the Assembly Appropriations Committee. As legislation carried over from last year, the bill must clear the full Assembly by the end of January. In addition to CNA, other supporters include the League of Women Voters, Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights, Gray Panthers, Sierra Club, and the California Clean Money Campaign. Voting for the bill today were Assembly members Johan Klehs (D-Hayward), Betty Karnette (D-Long Beach), Mark Leno (D-SF), and Lloyd Levine (D-Van Nuys). Voting no were... ... Mark Wyland (R-Vista),...

Its good to see that Francine Busby is down for this kind clean up in the House. The name just fits - nicely.
