Why? Who’s interests are being served?[/quote]
The “Employment Development Department-Labor Market Information Division” is a state agency that is supervised by the Governor (who supported AB32 and opposes Prop 23) and funded by the legislature (which created AB32). All of them are trying to pat each other on the back about how green they are.
You don’t think it is possible that they are grossly exaggerating for political reasons and possibly to snag some federal money?[/quote]
Wait! There are government agencies out there that gin their numbers?!? No! That couldn’t possibly be, could it?
