This will keep many immigrants who become gardeners in poverty. It will also make yard care impossibly expensive for all but the rich. Newsom feels the failed recall gives him a mandate which ironically is why they attempted to recall him in the first place. .  Expect it to get much worse if he runs for President as all candidates will scramble to outdo him.

Oooooh, tough one, and good one. I'm a proud convert to lithium ion battery lawn care, a brand called Ryobi, which is great and their batteries are interchangeable with any implement they produce, so a hedge trimmer, weed whacker or lawn mower it doesn't matter, you can use the battery in all of them and it's charge holds up a long time, if you have more than one battery you can continue and just throw your other battery on charge and plug the new one in and continue. 

But that's for individual home use, for home care businesses this is completely impractical and I would not be in favour of banning gas powered equipment where it affects businesses.

There are also electric mowers. They will want to ban them. They are now offering discounts of as much as $25 a year if people agree to never use electricity during evening hours.  They are out of their minds.

Still, I’ve been looking at battery powered equipment myself.

“They are now offering discounts of as much as $25 a year if people agree to never use electricity during evening hours.”

Is this not related to excessive energy consumption and strain on the power grid? I seem to recall hearing recently that this was the case? I know this has been the case in other jurisdictions, which is magnified by aging equipment, over use consumption, and environmental factors like sweltering heat for several days in a row.

I voted other:

Gas powered devices... WOW!

Cars, trucks, buses, ships, shovel cars, concrete mixers, cranes, tractors, bulldozers, lawn mowers, electricity generators, motor cycles, propeller planes, back up emergency generators, camping cars, fishing boats, cruisers, water pumps, etc. et. al... the list goes on.

And do they have alternative devices which the state will provide free of charge for those to convert from their current gas devices to non-gas devices? Oh... that technology is not fully available or reliable yet!

Then the bill is ludicrous to say the least.

This is a state overreach which will cause only more Californian's to want to move elsewhere!

They could boost the grid if they wanted to. I noticed right away the savings weren’t enough to compel most people to give up cooking or television or computer use during peak hours. When someone works outside the home all day, they need to use various devices or appliances when they return home. They are being asked to give up their only weekday free time when they can  prepare food, do laundry, even vacuum.

That guy wants to be our president.  The crazy way elections go, it could happen.

Well... McCain and Hillary also wanted to be president... but neither of them ever made it!

On another note. Republicans have been talking about election fraud ever since Clinton was in office.

They also talked about it with Bush in office and with Obama in office and with Trump in office and even more so now with Biden in office.

Bottom line: Republicans have been talking about voter fraud for quite some time now.

However, when did the Democrats talk about election fraud? 

Ahhhh.... they only talk about election fraud when the incumbent they didn't vote for was in office.

But the Republicans talked about it regardless of whether their incumbent was in office or the other party was in office.

Bottom line #2: Unless we correct the voter fraud which Republicans continuously discuss regardless of which party is in office is resolved... he might just become POTUS and run the entire U.S. into the ground just like California!

Republicans talk a lot but they maintain the status quo.  Democrats do a lot and talk a lot but a lot of what they say changes to fit their desired outcomes.
