SacTown Talks welcomes Assemblymember Jay Obernolte. He discussed how sheltering-in-place was busier than normal for the legislature and staff and the surreal nature of social distance legislating during COVID-19. Then he and Jarhett get into the details of the budget process, the use of the Committee of the Whole, Governor Newsom’s May Revise, proposed revenue increases, and his guiding principles and what his bill package will look like this term. Finally they discuss why Assemblymember has suspended his campaign for Congress and possible tech solutions for the future of the legislature.
