Tom McClintock, the quintessential political outsider during his 10 years in the Assembly, will stay in Sacramento to form a new group to track lawmakers' votes on tax issues and to document what the group determines is unnecessary spending by state agencies. The Thousand Oaks Republican, whose harsh appraisals of state budgets irked both Democrats and Republican Gov. Pete Wilson, was defeated by a wide margin in his bid for Congress in November.

Supporters of Proposition 140, which would limit terms of state officeholders, launched a "citizens campaign" Tuesday in Orange County to persuade voters to approve the measure. Flanked by a handful of backers, including Assemblyman Curt Pringle (R-Garden Grove), proposition treasurer Lewis K. Uhler said at a news conference that "career politicians" will fight the measure to keep their office. "Most incumbents do not support it," Uhler said. "But what we need are new faces in the state."

The sun was shining and birds were singing, but the mood Thursday afternoon outside the main Thousand Oaks post office was decidedly somber. Maybe it was the hand-lettered signs. The red-white-and-blue placards predicted gloomy times ahead. "Bill & Al's Endangered Species: The Middle Class," one read. "Raise Taxes. Vote Democrat," another declared. Or maybe it was the emotions.

Not content to drive most members of the Assembly and state Senate out of their jobs by 1996, backers of Proposition 140 want lawmakers to feel the bite of a dissatisfied electorate even more quickly. One of two term-limit initiatives on the Nov. 6 ballot, Proposition 140 would immediately remove lawmakers from a retirement system that proponents describe as "overly generous" and "extravagant."
