Is this slope slippery?

California’s state legislature has unanimously passed a bill that approves taxpayer dollars providing guaranteed monthly income with no restrictions for foster children aging out of the system and for pregnant women. It’s the first of its kind in the nation funding at the state level.

The $35 million measure passed 36-0 in the state senate and 64-0 in the state assembly, and is now headed to Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk. He is expected to sign it, given that he endorsed the plan in May as a way to spend the state’s budget surplus.
