[POLITICO California Playbook]

THE BUZZ: The state Legislature passed a budget yesterday. Now lawmakers will work to strike a budget deal.

If that sentence fell somewhere between confusing and paradoxical, here’s a little California budgeting refresher: legislators faced a constitutional deadline today to pass a deal or forego pay. Monday’s tension-free, party-line votes met that requirement while reminding Capitol-watchers of how far we’ve come from the caustic all-night budget battles of years past. But that doesn’t mean the fiscal infighting is finished.

Indeed, some of the more contentious issues remain unresolved. Legislative Democrats and Gov. Gavin Newsom still haven’t cemented accords on funding for tattered local public health systems and on the universe of undocumented immigrants who should be covered by Medi-Cal. The latter is a perennial fight that tends to set California’s progressive values against fiscal caution. Lawmakers want to offer coverage to people over the age of 50 regardless of immigration status; Newsom hasn’t committed to going that far, countering with 60.

So the center of the action is now between the governor and the Legislature. As Senate Budget Committee Chair Sen. Nancy Skinner put it yesterday, “This is the Legislature's budget. We are working hard to reach a three-party deal that includes the administration.” Rather than wrangling over painful cuts in a time of scarcity, Newsom and legislative Democrats are operating from a place of abundance. That’s allowed both branches to tout “transformative” or “historic” proposals. Legislative Democrats called this budget the best they’ve voted on. Even if not aligned with Newsom on all the details, having money to spend makes for a far less acrimonious process.

That process doesn’t sit well with sidelined California Republicans. Even GOP members were not immune to the allure of cascading cash, pointing to money for small businesses and the disabled to concede there’s plenty to like in the budget. But long-serving Sen. Jim Nielsen derided the document voted on yesterday as “a fake budget.” Assemblyman Vince Fong warned larger allocations do not ensure more effectiveness, protesting that lawmakers were being asked to vote without having “details that will determine whether programs will work or not.”

WHAT’S NEXT? The budget generally involves a bifurcated process of budget bills that set out the amounts and trailer bills that enact the policies. Trailer bills and junior budget bills will hit the Senate and Assembly floor in the coming weeks as deals are struck. And while it’s not uncommon to see lawmakers slip controversial policies into trailer bills, Nielsen predicted an “obscene” deluge of trailer bills as legislative leaders and Newsom hammer out details and then transform them into law. Don’t switch that channel just yet.

BUENOS DÍAS, good Tuesday morning. Happy Reopening Day! Today’s long-heralded shift will bring the end of the tiered coronavirus restriction system, which means businesses operating at capacity and vaccinated Californians dropping their masks indoors. The major hinge moment also presents a critical political test for Newsom.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I’m so excited about tomorrow for lots of reasons. There is this obsession sometimes — it’s primarily an East Coast thing — about trying to dance on California’s grave, and always predict that California’s not going to come back and particularly San Francisco. And it’s never true. This state and this city always come back.” Sen. Scott Wiener at an reopening event in San Francisco — where Wiener said he plans to return today to celebrate by hitting up some gay bars in the Castro.

BONUS QOTD: “They’re not perfect, but don’t demonize China as the only evil in the world. We’ve got a lot of evil right here in our own selves that we’ve got to correct.” Gov.

TOP TALKERS

LOBBYIST NO MORE: Jason Kinney, whose 50th birthday bash at the French Laundry morphed into a national headline for Newsom, is no longer officially a lobbyist at Axiom Advisors, <https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c700030ea2fd402237ff1ea9263028aa227f6c2b65d32a82f785566b54980580ca676bc755520ae615> the Sacramento-based public affairs and lobbying firm. Kinney, a political communications expert who has advised Newsom dating back to his days as SF mayor and worked for legislative Democrats, is returning to the political arena for the booming firm‘s communication arm.

A statement from Axiom Monday confirmed that Kinney will “now focus full time on building out Axiom and is no longer registered to lobby on state issues.” Kinney himself followed up on Twitter, saying <https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c7e6878d11970b033c8cdd53db5a062e0376db3edc9ccc934df89fd33dc4a285212934b700bb6517d2> he would focus on Axiom Communications and public affairs. “To recap,” Kinney added, “things I still answer to: ‘flack,’ ‘sometimes speechwriter,’ ‘quinquagenarian (aka ‘old’),” ‘alliterative compulsive,’ ‘accredited @Olivio_Rodrigo scholar,’ ‘Hoosier in exile,’ or ‘@SacramentoKings sixth man (never, EVER forget Game 6).’ Things I don’t: ‘lobbyist.’”

ROHRABACHER’S RETIREMENT — “Ex-Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, now a Mainer, marched on the Capitol Jan. 6, <https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c7e04e50721fc6628950a8a4e8f016cb1d51028772f8caf7a579c5dedbf27ffde9bf2b0aa4bf2247bc> ” by the Portland Press-Herald’s Colin Woodard.

ANAHEIM SCAPEGOAT?— “He Made Sticky Stuff for MLB Pitchers for 15 Years. Now He's Speaking Out<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c7a5a79245a97d3587936cf697488784774a6f04cae27ed9db42edc154249a91e658c00f85331c551a>,” by Sports Illustrated's Stephanie Apstein and Alex Prewitt: “Aces texted him and hurlers across baseball used his ‘stuff’” After the Angels fired him, this clubhouse attendant wants to know why he’s the lone fall guy.”

CAMPAIGN MODE

NEWSOM RECALL — “A serious man: Can Kevin Faulconer run for governor without the gimmicks?<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c757ae55715df05a7a6bfe65c09ffa3c6b213f60447e759ac71f07414066f3b61190978487bf6d0783>” by CalMatters’ Ben Christopher: “After months of lockdowns, political tumult and economic calamity, boring could be just what California voters want. Or not. Even some of Faulconer’s allies still aren’t sure he’s wise to have jumped into the recall race.”

— “Pandemic restrictions will largely vanish this week. Politics? Or science?<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c7fb369962fbe407ea7c02ff0adf0c7be67c42ab37fd2bfb95b34b67f3247f6b30f636c7dd592ad922>” by LADaily News’ Teri Sforza: “Some have asserted that the June 15 date was plucked from a hat by an embattled governor facing a recall election, but politics played no role in the decision, said Dr. Mark Ghaly, secretary of the California Health and Human Services Agency, in a Public Policy Institute of California webinar on Friday, June 11.”

BOUDIN BACKLASH — “The bogus backlash against progressive prosecutors<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c743340618637a5f48046d7fa650f87cc0d04106781ef76d04668df90efffa32b7dbca53d9cd2e1385>,” by the WaPo’s Radley Balko: “Boudin himself has already been targeted by a recall campaign, funded by several Silicon Valley financiers. His critics claim crime has soared since he took office, and they blame Boudin’s policies such as abolishing cash bail, compassionate release during the covid-19 pandemic and his refusal to seek sentencing enhancements.”

CALIFORNIA AND THE CAPITOL CORRIDOR

UBI? — “Universal basic income for Fresno-area farmworkers? Some local leaders are pushing for it<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c7bcf9ef12ef8db158d1a5a2dbd51258901a38d8bbb471d30c55aba6b5a37b9ba22461f70f52e65c36>,” by Fresno Bee’s Melissa Montalvo: “State Sen. Melissa Hurtado (D-Sanger) issued a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom last week urging the state to prioritize California’s ‘displaced, underemployed, or unemployed farmworkers’ for the Universal Basic Income pilot program.”

DISASTROUS INEQUITIES — “When The Big One Strikes, People Of Color Will Be Hit The Hardest<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c71c46d701639b82496ba45bfdb36ac645184d01694885032fbb6dfd1f05464da34654ada3fa09f540>,” by LAist’s Dana Amihere and Misha Euceph : A “study found white Americans who experienced natural disaster had the highest predicted wealth accumulation of any racial or ethnic group. Blacks, on the other hand, had an overall loss of wealth when they experienced disaster.”

TOXIC WORKPLACE? — “Unsafe at Work: A look at harassment, discrimination inside San Diego County’s largest employers<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c72edc249cb047554c6d563685c7058ed13461a20ff10544ec0cc4e58516b2c13a8b391e154ed7cb82>,” by the SD Union Tribune’s Lyndsay Winkley and Lauryn Schroeder: “At the city of San Diego, an employee said in a claim that they were subjected to repeated unwelcome sexual comments from a co-worker, including one occasion when the man, in the presence of other male employees, described what he believed the victim’s genitalia looked like.”

TRANSIT TROUBLES — “'More attractive just to stay home': Few transit options as Bay Area nightlife reawakens<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c73a918d7dc04c81367414c05b15cedff12129f1ffb4b5683df93ab8d6a45d01948ded059bcf1bc951>,” by the SFChronicle’s Ricardo Cano: “Options for getting around at night and in the early morning hours will probably be minimal or costly. The effects will be felt acutely among those without cars, and even more so for the region’s workers who depend on public transit yet have endured more than a year of reduced service.”

— “California state law enforcement union strikes deal to end pay cuts, restore raises<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c7ffa106dfc3f1c296ab11870e44dc52070c06562c3d41edfe3e0c54014f724b45c266bcf86b75803d>,” by the Sac Bee’s Isabella Bloom: “The new pact for the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association restores wages and raises to about 7,000 workers. It also ends the personal leave program, which gave workers two unpaid days off each month in exchange for the pay cuts.”

BUDGET — “California Asian American Legislators Seek ‘Historic’ $200 Million To Combat Hate<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c702dd2f60dc89afa3a41d0757df859c243f5cf3763670d42859dec3659762cb00d6a2ad4c9064ec39>,” by LAist’s Josie Huang: “The proposal is being pushed by the API Legislative Caucus after a rise in anti-Asian hate incidents and crimes over the last year. It would attempt to help affected communities through strategies ranging from promoting language access to offering alternatives to incarceration.”

— “California’s budget deadline doesn’t work like voters might think<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c7899d5be7d45efea66c1f5466ad58ea5571d2ab6b4cf62f1a749f45efe0fa993d85c9f1169fa87ab9>,” by the LATimes’ John Myers: “The most senior member of the Legislature, state Sen. Jim Nielsen (R-Red Bluff), publicly called out what budget analysts and lawmakers knew: The bill is largely a placeholder, not the finished product that voters might have expected.”

HEAT WAVE — “Blistering heat bearing down, with triple-digit temperatures that threaten L.A. area<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c7962737a75da4d8ced5619f48b8e59c94eccd924d1dfc30d05f937261f1cbb98d179b63a9bf2c86f7>,” by the LATimes’ Faith E. Pinho and Lila Seidman: “With temperatures expected to reach triple digits in some areas, the National Weather Service issued an excessive-heat warning from 10 a.m. Tuesday to 9 p.m. Friday in the mountains of Ventura and Los Angeles counties, not including the Santa Monica range.”

OAKLAND COLISEUM — “An Oakland WNBA team? It’s in one group’s plans for the Coliseum site<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c703b7785a864a74210b7fd778e106cd89f7ef16571f544c6797c6e3cdbd72278256981b894fe73e7d>,” by the Mercury News’ Annie Sciacca: “It is one of several groups that have expressed interest in buying the city’s share of the Oakland Coliseum in recent years. Alameda County agreed to sell its share in 2019 to the Oakland A’s for $85 million, so any group that buys the city’s half will have to work with the A’s, who play at the Coliseum now but want to move the team to a yet-to-be-approved waterfront ballpark at the port’s Howard Terminal and develop housing, retail, office space and parks at the Coliseum.”

ECONOMY — “COVID changed how we spend money. With California reopening, will we change back?<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c78422008bdde25b4177d5701e63419bfac950b277f43c4c021d243cdf4357f67d28b8c703028cc544>” via the LATimes’ staff: “As certain hallmarks of the pre-pandemic business world return, including conferences and rush-hour traffic, some believe consumers are hurrying to get back to the way things were — and make up for lost time.”

— “ How can you find a good job now that California is reopening? Here’s what to know<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c7eb11486cabc9194347e68e83461ec5b524d4ca9621152efd0d50dc173dded4e5543c3482ff0dacaa>,” by the Sac Bee’s Jeong Park: “The state lost more than three million jobs between February and April of 2020, the peak of the pandemic. Many of those lost jobs have come back. But California’s labor market is still more than 1.3 million jobs short of where it was before the pandemic.”

Carrying ashes from Paradise to Pelosi’s steps, the group hoped to draw attention to the urgent threat of human-driven climate change.”

NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET — “What could go wrong as California reopens: Variants, vaccine skepticism, inequities<https://go.politicoemail.com/?qs=82280c8662dc91c770a3cd51cce827f7a3a785a53c23fc0c166c51e9fcb7d39fc4da35003e8e7d6b0a4e1daa91c59f27>,” by the LATimes’ Rong-Gong Lin II and Luke Money: “Among the youngest adults under age 30 [in Los Angeles County], just 25% of Black and 39% of Latino residents have received at least one shot, while 55% of white, 54% of Native American and 72% of Asian American residents are at least partially vaccinated.”
