Redistricting, and California’s new election laws, produced a bumper crop of new state lawmakers and half of them hail from Southern California. They get sworn in Monday in Sacramento.
There are 38 new lawmakers, taking up nearly half of the Assembly’s 80 seats. The usual turnover is closer to a third.
