California Journal Analyses

The California Voter Foundation is pleased to be featuring the California Journal's analyses of the California propositions and races, originally published in the magazine's September and October 1996 editions. For those who are not familiar with this publication, the California Journal is a monthly magazine published by Statenet Publications in Sacramento. It is widely read by Capitol insiders, and is an invaluable source of news on California government and politics. This magazine is recommended to anyone interested in staying informed on California political news. (Annual subscriptions are $37.95. Call 800-726-4566 to order your subscription.)
