For those of you who do not know Proposition 16 was put on the ballot here by Pacific Gas and Electric, and would have forced local communities to pass a two thirds vote in order to have publiclly run power systems at the local level. PG+E called this bill the "taxpayers right to vote act" and spent 47 million of shareholders money on the campaign. The commercials were the usual outraged citizens tired of big government spending their money. I thought there was no way PGE could lose. Maybe something is happening in this country that big money cannot buy the political process the way they always have. A great day for California. Freaking Hallelujah!
