According to the California Legislative Analyst’s Office, we spend over $81,000 per individual who is incarcerated.  Other than incarceration, what ways can the State address safety and justice?
Respuesta de James R. Henson:

Investments in education, after school programs from 5-14, and affordable child care are the three that come to my mind. Later, after school work programs that can match entry level jobs with 16 year old high school students. 

What programs or legislation would you support to meet the water needs of all Californians?
Respuesta de James R. Henson:

SB 200 the safe drinking water bill. Other legislation I'm not as much clear as to the balance between the water from the Northern part of California to Southern California and the effects of surface water and underground water supplies. For example the word overdraft means when withdrawals of water exceed the amount that is replenished over the long term. The last drought caused the a drop in the water tables causing more than 3,500 domestic wells to run dry.
