A Blueprint to Renew California
Berggruen Institute, 2011
In A Blueprint to Renew California, the Think Long Committee proposes a set of integrated structural reforms to set in a place a long-term framework for good governance in California. The report offers a range of recommendations but the core of the proposals are centered around increasing local control, establishing an independent citizen watchdog committee and a broad-based tax system.
The Think Long Committee, made up of prominent Californians from various sectors, advocates a comprehensive approach to repairing California’s broken system of governance, while proposing policies and institutions that are vital to the state’s long-term success.
