Here is a list of agencies and commissions in the Golden State. A very small sampling picked more or less randomly:
California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) * California Workers Compensation Appeals Board * California Workforce and Labor Development Agency * California Workforce Investment Board * California Youth Authority (CYA) * Jobs with the State of California * Learn California * Lieutenant Governors Commission for One California * Little Hoover Commission (on California State Government Organization and Economy) * California Small Business and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Certification Program * California Small Business Development Center Program * California Smart Growth Caucus * California School to Career * California Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) * California Refugee Programs Branch * California Office of the Ombudsman * California Office of the Patient Advocate * California Museum for History, Women, and the Arts * California Museum Resource Center * California National Guard * California Native American Heritage Commission * California Labor and Workforce Development Agency * California Labor Market Information Division
It’s pretty easy to see why California is flat broke, isn’t it? And don’t forget, many, many of these groups are busy imposing regulatory burdens on those who actually create jobs and wealth.
