After another protracted and bitter budget fight, Californians have become deeply distrustful of the way the state governs itself and are now cautiously open to change. Several reform proposals, such as open primaries and a part-time legislature, will require voter attention in 2010. A panel of experts on the subject of California will convene at this event for a presentation of the findings of the latest PPIC Statewide Survey on Californians and Their Government, and will assess and discuss the landscape for change and reform.
