Add a Law, Delete a Law Idea Advances to the Forward Thinking Four
The Add a Law, Delete a law idea has been advanced to the Forward Thinking Four stage of the Fix California Challenge. The idea behind this submission is to require a law to be removed before a new law is added.
Each year thousands of bills are introduced in the California State Legislature, hundreds will become new laws and there is no real review of old laws or programs. This idea would put in place a process to review existing laws that may be outdated and unnecessary when new laws are up for a vote.
The idea submitter cited that Canada recently enacted this law, and that by enacting this in California, we may be able to alleviate undue burden on our government.
Fix California Challenge community members seem to agree, with one member stating that they would like to see a word limit proposed as well. View the original submission and join in the conversation here. Follow the conversation on Facebook & Twitter using #FixCal.
