NPR Trust in Government

NPR had two wonderful sessions today:
  1. California's Initiative. Half its budget is tied up in laws created by the innitiative. And California Forward is pushing new proposals on governmetn process. I just looked at their web site and they are vague on their proposals, but they do include changing the budget to two years, allowing the budget to be approved with fifty percent but require two thirds for a tax increase, and preventing the use of one-time increases in revenues for continuing expense.s
  2. A new series on Trust in Government--beginning with an interview with DR. Zelikow, who was part of the Bush Administration and also is a professor who wrote a book on Trust on Goverment. He pointed that trust in government goes up and down--but now government has more responsibilities than ever before.
