Legislative Efficiency

As an engineer, the lawmaking process is painful to observe. It’s completely open-looped. Lawmakers generate political capital based on values and implement legislation without clearly-defined outcomes. It’s time for Californians to close the loop. If elected, I will implement legislative reform that requires results. All legislation would require specific, measurable goals, along with a deadline, and funding to study and monitor the progress in meeting those goals. If those goals are not met by the deadline, the law is automatically repealed. Prior to repeal, lawmakers will be free to rewrite the legislation with better guidelines for meeting the desired outcomes.
