Reforming California's Environmental Quality Act, restoring cuts to education, fixing the state's ballot initiative process and campaign finance reform…those are just a few of the issues lawmakers will likely contend with this session.
Democrats return with a supermajority in both chambers… even with two Senators recently resigning to serve in Congress.
Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg says he takes Democrats' supermajority power very seriously.
STEINBERG: "We're going to govern with humility but we're also going to govern with strength. And we're going to try to get a lot of things done for the people, there is so much to do."
