 California government and politics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
California is governed as a republic, with three branches of government, the executive branch consisting of the Governor of California and the other elected constitutional officers, the legislative branch consisting of the Assembly and Senate, and the judicial branch consisting of the Supreme Court of California and lower courts.
The governing law is a constitution, interpreted by the California Supreme Court, whose members are appointed by the Governor, and ratified at the next general election.
The Big Five is an informal institution of California government, consisting of the governor, the Assembly speaker, the Assembly minority leader, the Senate president pro tempore, and the Senate minority leader.

 The 'California Capitol Buzz'
Unfortunately, the California Legislative Analyst, after careful review of the Governor's proposal, determined that Governor Davis' budget was at least $5 billion 'short' of being in balance.
Though the Senate President and the Governor are members of the same political party, there have been times that it seemed otherwise.
Early this year, it was obvious that the FY 2002 California State Budget was headed for the proverbial brick wall.

 Government and Politics (from California) --  Britannica Student Encyclopedia
The rugged Mexican peninsula of Lower California, known as Baja California, is, for the most part, a mountain-ridged desert that stretches 760 miles (1,220 kilometers) from the United States–Mexico border in the north to Cabo San Lucas in the south.
The state is bounded on the north by Oregon, on the east by Nevada and Arizona, on the south by the Mexican state of Baja (“Lower”) California, and on the west by the Pacific Ocean.
The word government is derived from a Greek verb meaning “to pilot a ship.” It is a fitting derivation, since, in metaphorical terms, it is the responsibility of government to steer the “ship of state.&; Governments have been a part of human history for thousands of years.

 Amazon.com: Books: Democracy in California: Politics and Government in the Golden State
California has been shaped for good or for ill by these competing forces and is necessarily presented in this work as a sort of hodge podge in which multiple offices, frequent elections and political cronyism (the Jacksonian contribution) overlap with direct democracy, anti-partyism and professional expertise (the Progressive contribution).
California defied the odds against republican government but the rise of the administrative state and its seemingly boundless taxing and spending--and bureaucratic meddling--puts the future of that regime in serious question.
But having weathered those challenges, California (and the nation) have had to endure the various phases and consequences of the Prussian administrative state which was the questionable contribution of the Progressive movement in the decades since the State's admission to the Union by the Compromise of 1850.
