"For Bauer-Kahan, an environmental attorney by trade when she won the District 16 seat in 2018 for her first elected office, the 2021-22 legislative session saw the second-term assemblymember have 15 bills signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom."

So what? Exactly how difficult would it be to get bills passed given that the state legislature is dominated by Democrats and Newsom is a member of the same party? Republicans can't stop the passage of any bills because they do not have the votes. Bauer-Kahan is a rubber stamp for the far left wing of her party and some of us do not measure "progress" or "values" by how much more the state "needs" to regulate, spend, and tax.
