Of course it does.

The bill was introduced originally as AB 1058 at the beginning of the legislative session in February 2001 by a freshman legislator, Fran Pavley, from Southern California.
The bill was revived through a parliamentary maneuver on Saturday June 29, when the Senate was meeting in a special session on the state budget. An existing, unrelated bill, AB 1493, was gutted by the Democratic leadership and amended to bear the content of AB 1058. This was passed by the Assembly with a bare majority on a mostly party-line vote. It was passed by the Senate that same day, and Governor Davis signed it into law a few weeks later.
So, once again, Progressives tell voters to sit down, shut up, and submit to our will. And the Nation is forced to accept it, right, or wrong.
That what it means to be Progressive.
