Political Roadmap: Don’t design large changes if Democrats win a Sacramento supermajority on Nov. 8

Even Republicans, who would adore to change a change of domestic energy in Sacramento, know that celebration will control both houses of a Legislature after Nov. 8.

The customarily genuine election drama is if Democrats can squeeze during slightest 54 seats in a Assembly and 27 seats in a Senate — a two-thirds supermajority long seen as a Holy Grail of state supervision politics.

With a supermajority, a domestic party can raise taxes, place measures on a statewide ballot, enact laws immediately with an “urgency” proviso and override a governor’s veto. In theory, it’s an outrageous volume of power.

Democrats grabbed two-thirds of all legislative seats in 2012 — the initial time any domestic celebration had finished so in both houses since 1933 — aided by newly drawn domestic maps and President Obama’s frisk over Mitt Romney.
