Yucaipa should not re-elect this Cook buffoon.He's a disgrace and another fraud that we the taxpayers keep on the payroll.

Cook was just trying to make sure we would not
think of him as just another do-nothing politician.
Unfortunately, we taxpayers are picking up this

Ahhhhh, HELLO! this issue diverted attention away from the real issue of the repubican minority blocking the budget process.
Funny how 99% of red states only require a simple majority to pass their state budgets butt here in this state we let the minority party run our government.
Yes on 25, yes on majority rule!

Lawmaker Receives Unfair Heat for Doing His Job
Chair, Contractors State License Board
As a result of Governor Arnold Schwarzeneggerâs veto of Assembly Bill (AB) 2419, Assembly Member Paul Cook has taken a lot of unfair heat and mischaracterizations. The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) wants to set the record straight.
AB 2419 was initially drafted as a bill sponsored by CSLB to authorize the Registrar of Contractors to issue a stop work order to any unlicensed contractor who didnât cover his or her employees with workersâ compensation insurance. CSLB asked Mr. Cook to carry the legislation because we knew he understood how important this would be for the protection of consumers and construction employees.
When the key provision was later inserted into another piece of legislation, CSLB asked Mr. Cook to amend his existing bill as an efficient vehicle for routine clean-up languageâthe correction of spelling, grammatical and other drafting errors, redundancies, and inconsistencies that had accumulated in California Construction Law for years.
The accurate portrayal is that clean-up bills move through the legislature with little or no opposition every yearâtheyâre part of the legislative process. Thereâs even a state agency called the Legislative Counselâs Office with responsibilities that include identifying these types of errors in law. The Legislative Counselâs Office drafts all legislation introduced by the Legislature and has, along with the various policy committees, consistently encouraged clean-up of errors and inconsistencies in state codes. In six separate legislative votes, not one single vote opposed AB 2419.
Itâs not a matter of addressing these changes on a whim; the changes have to be madeâif not this year, then sometime in the future. AB 2419âs removal of the apostrophe in CSLBâs name was just one of the things done to make the law consistent; it was by no means the only thing.
In addition to setting the record straight about this bill, I publicly thank Mr. Cook for his unwavering support of CSLB and his tireless work to protect the consumers of his district and the state of California. Mr. Cook has always been a strong supporter of CSLB and all efforts to protect consumers. Over the past three years, CSLB has teamed with Mr. Cookâs office to conduct nine different outreach events in his district, including six Senior Scam Stopperâ seminars and a rebuilding forum for victims of a 2008 wildfire in San Bernardino Countyâmore than any other southern California state legislator.
CSLB is grateful that Assemblyman Paul Cook consistently demonstrates his professionalism, integrity, and willingness to take steps to improve our state, and thanks him for his vigor and hard work.
