SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - California lawmakers are returning to the Capitol this week for a pivotal election-year session.
Expect fights over billions of dollars in new tax revenue and leadership changes in both parties. Democrats will work to protect the supermajorities that give them command of state politics, as a federal corruption investigation hangs over one of their own in the Senate.
Meanwhile, freshmen lawmakers elected under California's newly extended term limits will come of age, a class that could dominate the lawmaking process for more than a decade.
