INTERESTING BILLS VO/SOT

SOTS THAT DID NOT MAKE THE FEED DUE TO TIME CONSTRAINTS ARE AVAILABLE ON THE WEB

LIVE: ASSEMBLYMAN MARK LENO'S BILL LEGALIZING SAME SEX MARRIAGE IS ON ITS WAY TO THE GOVERNOR'S DESK FOR A SECOND TIME. THAT LEGISLATION WAS APPROVED THIS MORNING IN THE STATE SENATE.

SUPER: TODAY/STATE CAPITOL/SACRAMENTO

VO: (:21) IT IS THE SECOND TIME TWO HOUSES OF A STATE LEGISLATURE HAVE APPROVED A BILL ALLOWING GAY MARRIAGE. THE FIRST WAS IN 2005. SCHWARZENEGGER VETOED IT. THE BILL REDEFINES THE FAMILY CODE DEFINING MARRIAGE AS A CIVIL CONTRACT BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE RATHER THAN THE CURRENT CONTRACT BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN.

SUPER: SENATOR CAROLE MIGDEN/D-SAN FRANCISCO

SOT: exchange regarding Senator Larry Craig and relevance to debate not transcribed due to time.

SUPER: SENATOR DENNIS HOLLINGSWORTH/R-MURRIETA

VO TAG:

22 DEMOCRATS IN THE SENATE VOTED FOR THE BILL, WITH THE HOUSE'S 15 REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OPPOSING IT.

EDITOR'S NOTE:

THE SENATE ALSO APPROVED FLOOD CONTROL BILLS AGREED TO BY DEMOCRATS IN THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY BUT OPPOSED BY MOST REPUBLICANS IN BOTH HOUSES. THE MEASURES WOULD RECONFIGURE THE STATE'S RECLAMATION BOARD THAT SETS FLOOD POLICY AND WOULD TAKE SOME LAND USE DECISIONS FROM LOCAL AGENCIES TO THAT BOARD. IT WOULD ALSO REQUIRE FLOODING TO BE FACTORED INTO DEVELOPMENT AS A HAZARD AS FIRES AND EARTHQUAKES CURRENTLY ARE. VIDEO OF RED CARPET IS THE SENATE. VIDEO WITH GREEN CARPET IS THE ASSEMBLY, WHERE A BILL FOR A SENTENCING COMMISSION FAILED. BUT WILL BE RECONSIDERED NEXT WEEK.

EXTRA BITES:

SUPER: SENATE REPUBLICAN LEADER DICK ACKERMAN/R-IRVINE

SOT: (:10)

SAYS: "IT DEPENDS ON HOW MANY WE DO IT'S A BILLION AND A HALF EACH, WE DON'T WANT TO PUT MONEY ON COLLATERAL THINGS AND NOT BRICKS AND MORTAR."

SOT: (:06)

SAYS: "WE SUPPORT PUTTING MONEY INTO THE DELTA, THAT ESTIMATE HAS GROWN, MAKE SURE THERE'S SOME JUSTIFICATION FOR IT."

SUPER: SENATE PRESIDENT PRO TEMPORE DON PERATA/D-OAKLAND

SOT: (:27)

SAYS: "I DON'T HAVE ANY DOUBT WE'LL BE IN SPECIAL SESSION SOON TO CONSIDER HEALTHCARE, THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE FOR HIM IS TO CALL US INTO SPECIAL SESSION BECAUSE ONCE YOU GO IN THE REQUIREMENT IS ON THE GOVERNOR TO PROVIDE A BILL."

SUPER: SENATOR MIKE MACHADO/D-LINDEN

SOT: (:31)

SAYS: "THIS BILL IS A TEMPLATE FOR FLOOD CONTROL, FOR APPLYING MONIES THE STATE MAY APPROPRIATE OR VOTERS MAY APPROVE FOR FLOOD CONTROL ACTIVITIES. THE PLAN ALSO ESTABLISHES PARTICIPATION FOR COST SHARING TO DEVELOP MORE TO BE REFLECTIVE OF THE ECONOMIC CONDITION OF THE COMMUNITIES."

SUPER: SENATOR SAM AANESTAD/R-GRASS VALLEY

SOT: (:35)

SAYS: "THERE IS NO INPUT FROM ANY COUNTY SUPERVISORS AFFECTED BY THE OUTCOME OF THIS BILL. NONE AND I THINK WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS GO BACK TO WHAT THE CONSTITUTION ASKED US 100 YEARS AGO, THEN LET THEM COME IN FOR A PUBLIC HEARING THEY DON'T GET KICKED OUT BECAUSE THERE'S A TRANSPORTATION MEETING AT THE SAME TIME."

SUPER: SENATOR DARREL STEINBERG/D-SACRAMENTO

SOT: (:28)

SAYS: "TO DELAY THIS BILL TO NEXT YEAR WOULD MEAN MAKING IT EFFECTIVE A YEAR LATER FOR THE REQUIREMENTS TO GO INTO EFFECT AND IF HURRICANE KATRINA TEACHES US ANYTHING IT'S THAT TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE WHEN IT COMES TO FLOOD CONTROL AND PUBLIC SAFETY."

SUPER: CANDY ANDERSON/SACRAMENTO COALITION TO END THE WAR

SOT: (0:43)

SAYS: "AND WE THINK THAT WOULD BE THE WORST THING, WORST POSSIBLE THING THAT WE COULD DO AS A NATION, IS TO ATTACK A NATION THAT HASN'T DONE ANYTHING TO US. SOME PEOPLE ARGUE THAT THEY, THEY , UH, SUPPLY PEOPLE, UH, SOLDIERS, THE INSURGENTS IN IRAQ WITH WEAPONS TO KILL OUR GUYS, WELL, THAT'D BE LIKE IF WE WERE ATTACKED, AND THE MEXICANS WERE HELPING US WITH WEAPONS AGAINST OUR OPPRESSORS. SO, UH, YOU NOW, WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. AND WE ARE JUST HERE TO VOICE OUR FEELINGS, AND OUR OPINIONS, AND TO UM, MAKE A STATEMENT, AND WE'RE HOPING THAT THERE ARE SOME LEGISLATORS STILL HERE TODAY, BECAUSE WE PLAN ON TRYING TO MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD."

VO TAG:

SOT: (0:24)

SAYS: "WELL, ONE, ONE CURRENT THING IS THE FACT THAT THE, THE WHITE HOUSE IS THE PEOPLE THAT ARE GOING TO WRITE THE REPORT ON THE SURGE, WHETHER OR NOT IT WORKED, WE, THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA WILL NOT HEAR DIRECTLY FROM GENERAL PETRAEUS ON THAT. THEY'VE ALREADY, YOU KNOW, DECIDED THAT THAT, YOU KNOW, THEY DON'T WANT THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER TO BE OUT THERE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC."
