Yesterday's State of the State speech by Gray Davis was derided by the press
corps for its lack of specifics and as a failed attempt to directly address
the State of California's budget crisis.

In contrast, I thought you might find the attached Sacramento Bee article
interesting.  This article not only points out the deficiencies in Davis'
budget plans but outlines the detailed budget proposal I introduced last
week. Please let my campaign know if you would like a copy.

My plan has a three part framework of budget cuts, a comprehensive economic
stimulus package and long term structural budget reforms. The reforms
included two new proposals:

1. Creating a real state spending limit to ensure that the democrats cannot
grow the state budget at 36% while the state population grows at 5%.

2. Implementing a "People"s Fund" to determine how future state surpluses
get spent. Again, this is to ensure that the Democrats do not waste them or
build them into the base budget.

I will be unveiling other new major policy proposals this
month - we will keep you updated.

A few of the major state policy proposals I have introduced to date:

1. State Budget Plan

2. Homeland Defense Plan + Freedom Pay proposal

3. Statewide Ag Policy

4. e-Government Plan - statewide plan to put government services on-line so
you don't stand in-line.

5. Ethics Reform Plan - in response to the major conflicts of interest in
the Davis administration.

6. Energy Plan

7. VoteAmerica

8. Safe at Home - a new address confidentiality program that protects
victims of domestic violence to ensure that they will never be found by the
their abusers.

9. State Lottery Proposal - a policy proposal to address the current scandal
where the Lottery has admitted that they sell scratcher tickets after the
top prizes had been claimed. This propsal will ensure that this never
happens again.

10. Elections Reform I - a 10 point major reform plan to ensure that
California can never be another Florida.

11. Elections Reform II - a phase out of all punch card ballot systems in
California combined with the sponsorship of Proposition 41, the Democracy
Fund, to provide $200 million to fund these new systems.
