Here is a great reason why we should go to a part-time legislature. In California, the legislature has proposed 2,189 bills this year. Plus 23 constitutional amendments. They obviously have too much time on their hands as we do not need over 2,000 pieces of legislation in a single year. The legislature is spending time on all of these instead of really fixing what is broken (e.g., long term debt, usurping decision-making powers of the cities for land use, etc.).
