The article reports that the upcoming year should be an interesting one in California government, with the politicking kicking off in earnest with tonight's state of the state address by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Some of those issues, like the $8 billion structural budget deficit, are problems carried over from last year. Others, such as an expected proposal for redistricting reform, mark a new push from the administration for changes to the state's political structure. The governor is expected to back a plan that would take the redistricting process for Congressional and legislative seats out of lawmakers' hands and give the authority to a panel of judges.
