A Friday Video And Former Board Member Sues CalPERS

19th Annual NASPP Conference in San Francisco.

We all have a sense of how voting should work. Voting, however, is a very complicated subject and one in which errors are frequently made.

California then filed a motion to exempt its action from the automatic stay based on the police power exemption provision.
