Golden State Outforcing

I have an oped on outforcing in today's LA Daily News:

    California's lawmakers, already the best-paid in the nation, recently got a 12 percent raise.

    This sort of thing always makes for a tough public-relations sell, but Assembly Speaker Fabian NuŅez defended the raise by saying that it will help attract good people to politics. Maybe so, but wouldn't it be nice if the Legislature focused on bringing new business, not new politicians, to California?

Read on, here.

For more on outforcing, see this recent study by Adrian and meā€“especially the discussion beginning on p.33.
