When you consider the implications of the population projections for California, it does call into question whether the State may be nearing some limit of governability in its current configuration. Thom Bryant argues in California 2.0 that, instead of trying to split California into multiple smaller states, a better approach would be to redefine the role of county government relative to the state, to other counties and to their municipalities and special districts. In order to maximize the benefits from such a reorganization, he advocates merging existing counties into 19 regional counties that more closely align with today s population clusters, economies and infrastructure. The included maps of these proposed regional counties are sure to spark a debate about what is included or not included in a given region. This is a unique proposal and a welcome addition to the current political discourse on right sizing government. This book will be of interest to anyone concerned with state and local government in California.
