Newport Beach Republican Assemblyman Chuck DeVore took on a crusade some considered out of character when he championed a bill that would allow farmers to grow industrial hemp in California. State senators passed the bill last week, though only three Republicans supported it, and it now goes back to Assembly members, who must consider some Senate amendments. A rock-ribbed conservative, DeVore seems an unlikely supporter of the measure, which was proposed by San Francisco Democratic Assemblyman Mark Leno.

Assemblyman Chuck DeVore’s Democratic challenger is quick to ask a reasonable question: Why is he, a Democrat in America’s most conservative county, running for Assembly against what appear to be impossible odds? “Well, the simple answer is, because I live here,” Lake Forest attorney Michael Glover said. “I guess everyone has their Don-Quixote-, slay-the-dragon kind of story.” The former Kansas legislator said his seven years in the Kansas Statehouse, along with the “sense of justice” he acquired as a prosecutor in Lawrence, Kan., affords him a unique public persona that embodies 2008’s biggest buzz words: “experience” and “change.

Trucks-only tollway would be financed privately, avoiding any tax hikes, under assemblyman's plan.Anticipating Gov. Schwarzenegger's plan to build toll lanes for trucks on some existing highways, Newport Beach Assemblyman Chuck DeVore on Thursday came out with his own proposal for a trucks-only toll road from the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles to the Inland Empire. The biggest difference in DeVore's proposal is that it would be funded with private money; the governor's toll lanes would be part of a multibillion-dollar bond.

Local California Assembly Republicans Chuck DeVore and Van Tran voted alongside a unanimous coalition of assembly Republicans to oppose a new Democrat-backed budget plan Sunday, which means the state still doesn’t have a budget more than a month into the fiscal year. However, DeVore and Tran consider the vote an important step toward solving California’s budget stalemate. “Now that the vote has failed, we’re hoping that some of our suggestions will be taken seriously,” DeVore said.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger still has 18 days to persuade Republicans in the California legislature to sign on to his proposed temporary increase in the sales tax and about $4.5 billion in spending cuts. Tuesday afternoon, Schwarzenegger called the second meeting of the “Big Five” — a bipartisan group of Democratic and Republican legislative leaders from the Assembly and Senate — to continue negotiations. Local Republican Assemblymen Chuck DeVore and Van Tran, and Sen. Tom Harman — like most legislators — are not directly involved in the negotiating, but they get frequent reports from the minority party leaders about new developments.

UCI CAMPUS — The Muslim Student Union, which has garnered attention and criticism for its recent political events on campus, drew the attention of a state assemblyman on Thursday who intended to film the union's event and post it online. Newport Beach Assemblyman Chuck DeVore attended a speech in the Humanities Hall by Sheikh Sadullah Khan, a political activist from South Africa who fought against the country's apartheid regime. The assemblyman brought a hand-held video camera with him and said before the event that he wanted to see how members of the Muslim Student Union would react to him taping Khan's speech.

Alicia Robinson and Lauren Vane State and federal officials have at least temporarily dashed the hopes Laguna Beach landslide victims had of moving into El Morro Village and getting federal funds. Nearly two dozen families rendered homeless by the June 1 landslide won't be receiving individual assistance funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the agency's Washington office decided Friday. The slide victims also won't be moving into vacant mobile homes at El Morro Village in Crystal Cove State Park, California Resources Agency Secretary Mike Chrisman told Newport Beach Assemblyman Chuck DeVore last week.

It's round two for Newport Beach Assemblyman Chuck DeVore and a bill he co-sponsored that would let California farmers grow industrial hemp, which is used to make shampoo, cloth and other products. The bill passed both the Assembly and Senate last year before Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed it. DeVore vowed to bring it back, and he and co-sponsor Mark Leno, a Democrat from San Francisco, did just that. The Assembly passed the bill late last week, and it's now in the Senate, DeVore said Wednesday.

This week has been one of promotions and recognition for Newport-Mesa officials, with Costa Mesa Assemblyman Van Tran's elevation to assistant Republican Assembly leader topping the list. On Monday, Tran was named one of two assistant GOP Assembly leaders by newly minted Republican leader George Plescia of San Diego. It's a step that shows how fast politicos think Tran's star is rising. Fellow Orange County politician Mimi Walters, a Laguna Niguel assemblywoman, was named an assistant Republican leader along with Tran.

Tom Campbell and Chuck DeVore did little to showcase the differences between their political beliefs Tuesday night at Brandman University in Irvine. The town hall forum, hosted by the subsidiary of Chapman University, was driven by live-audience and e-mailed questions. Carly Fiorina, the third Republican candidate for Sen. Barbara Boxer’s seat, refused to attend because she did not believe moderator Mike Moodian to be “fair and impartial.” The majority of questions focused on health care.
