Pension Reform Initiative

Reform California is supporting the effort by former San Diego City Councilman Carl DeMaio and former San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed to reform the bloated pensions for state and local government workers.  


Reform California is a 527 political action committee that serves as a watchdog on how state and local government spends our tax dollars.  We fight unnecessary tax hikes and we instead propose efficiency reforms to fix problems.

Our mission is to fight wasteful spending in state and local government - and ensure that savings are put back into the services that Californians need. Reform California accomplishes its mission by sponsoring research projects, analyzing state and local budget decisions, and crafting a variety of reform proposals.  

Recall Election to Reverse Car and Gas Tax Hikes

Reform California is working with a coalition to initiate a Recall Election against State Senator Josh Newman in Orange County who was the deciding vote on the recent Car and Gas Tax hikes.
