The California State Senate became the first state legislative body in the country to oppose BushÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s troop surge plan on Monday when they passed a resolution to urge Congress and Bush not to escalate U.S. involvement in the war.
I was less than satisfied to see this paragraph in the San Francisco chronicle regarding the resolution:
The nonbinding resolution, which will be sent to Congress if it clears the Assembly, was approved by the 40-member Senate on a largely party-line vote of 22-14. Voting “no” were 13 Republicans and one Southern California Democrat, Lou Correa of Orange County.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m working on getting some sort of explanation for CorreaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s office. In the meantime, you can read the SFChronicle story here.
