Of Jerry Brown and Santa Claus

December 27, 2013 | By TONY FRANCOIS

It appears to be PLF week at the San Diego Union Tribune.  Today the paper published this OpEd by PLF attorneys Harold Johnson and yours truly.  The piece discusses PLF’s pending challenge to San Jose’s affordable housing exactions in the California Supreme Court on behalf of the California Building Industry Association.

The piece opens with a classic bit of wisdom from California’s sometime philosopher-governor: when it comes to government programs, “there is no Santa Claus.”
